San Francisco Giants (5-8) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (9-3) - 10:10PM Est.

The Diamondbacks are already playing the best baseball of anybody in the Major Leagues, and tonight they may get another boost. That’s right, the mythical creature known as The Big Unit returns to the mound tonight in San Francisco. The 44-year old Randy Johnson is coming off of his second back surgery, but he won’t be on a pitch count of any type tonight, and is free to just let it loose. Unit faced the Giants twice last season, not picking up a decision while posting a 3.00ERA, and is 2-2 with a 2.84ERA lifetime at AT&T Park (though he hasn’t pitched there since 2004). If Randy is half as good as he used to be, he’ll be giving the DBacks a top three in their rotation that can go with anybody else along with Brandon Webb and Dan Haren. Add to that the fact that everybody in the lineup looks like a Hall of Famer so far this season, and it’s just not fair. The Giants will counter with Jonathan Sanchez, who pitched well in his last appearance against the Padres (6 innings, no runs, no decision), but is still looking for his first win of the season. He’ll also be looking for his first win against the Diamondbacks, as he’s 0-3 with an 8.10 ERA in three starts against them.
