Giants Vs. D-Backs Lineups: Jeff Samardzija Looks to Continue Hot Streak

Just a week after winning a four-game series in Phoenix, the Giants play the Arizona Diamondbacks at Oracle Park to wrap up a midweek two-game series.

One of the Giants top prospects could potentially make his MLB debut, as the organization called up Mauricio Dubon on Tuesday afternoon. Dubon has been slashing .323/.391/.485 in 112 plate appearances across the minor leagues since coming over in a trade with the Brewers for Ray Black and Drew Pomeranz.

Jeff Samardzija takes the hill for the Giants, and the Shark has been on a tear of late. Since July 1, Samardzija is 5-2 with a 2.09 ERA and an outstanding 0.86 WHIP.

The 34-year-old has faced the D-Backs 20 times in his career, compiling a 4-5 record with a 4.33 ERA.

Opposite Samardzija will be Mike Leake, who was dealt to Arizona on at the MLB trade deadline from the Seattle Mariners. The former top-10 pick briefly was a Giant himself, acquired in 2015 in exchange for Adam Duvall and Keury Mella.

Leake has a favorable record inside China Basin, as he is 6-1 with a 3.06 ERA in 10 games at Oracle Park.
