NL Cy Young Watch: Brandon Webb

Brandon WebbSan Francisco Giants (68-83) at Arizona Diamondbacks (74-76)

First Pitch: 9:40 PM ET
Starting Pitchers: Jonathan Sanchez (9-10, 4.47 ERA) vs. Brandon Webb (20-7, 3.28)

Cy Young Watch:
Webb became the National League’s first 20-game winner in his last start, allowing five hits in eight scoreless innings in a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds. But before earning his 20th win, Webb was 0-3 with a 12.51 ERA in three previous starts.

Webb will face a struggle Giants club that has totaled just one run in the first two games of the four-game series with the Diamondbacks. Webb will try to improve on his 12-5 record and 3.25 ERA in 25 starts against the G-Men. San Fran is just 7-9 this season against Arizona, so Webb has an outstanding opportunity to get to 21-5 on the season and help his cause for NL Cy Young.

The Giants will counter with Sanchez, who is 1-1 with a 7.24 ERA in three starts against the Diamondbacks this season. The left-hander is 1-4 in six career starts against Arizona.
