Diamondbacks vs Giants prediction

Ryne Nelson wasn’t great last season, and he’s off to a rocky start this year, allowing 17 hits and 8 earned runs in 13.2 innings. Logan Webb is one of the better pitchers in baseball, especially at home, and he’s allowed 10 runs in 23.2 inning despite 3 of his 4 starts coming on the road. Current Diamondbacks are hitting a solid .296 in 125 at bats against Webb, but I’m still going to lean toward the Giants at home and the reasonable price. Webb is great at Oracle Park and has been for years. Give me the Giants.
