Barry Zito (10-8, 4.42) will take the bump, looking to turn it around after his last outing. He allowed three runs and seven hits in a season-low 2.1 innings on Wednesday. The Giants still won that game, and the last five of Zito's starts.
The Diamondbacks will counter with Patrick Corbin (5-6, 3.93 ERA), who is 3-1 with a 3.60 ERA over his last five starts. He allowed three runs in 6.2 innings against the Reds in his last outing, striking out eight along the way.
San Francisco still maintains a 4.5 game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West, and a 10.5 game lead over the third place D-backs.
First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
