Diamondbacks vs. Giants: Merrill Kelly will rebound vs. San Fran

Daredevil Nik Wallenda walks a tightrope between Times Square buildings Sunday night. New Yorkers know Times Square is a lot safer 25 stories up than it is at street level.

D’backs lost ground this week in the wild-card chase. Dropped their fifth straight heading into Saturday’s late game. They host the last-place Giants this weekend. Merrill Kelly, coming off a weak start against the rival Rockies, can rebound. Went 3-0, 0.81 ERA, in previous three outings. Hungry Snakes should get the early bite on Frisco’s Shaun Anderson who continues to have first-inning woes. Opposition is hitting .438 while belting four homers off Anderson in the opening frame over last seven starts. Play 20 units on the D’backs.

Skid’s over. Played two, won both. Twins blew a 3-0 lead after Jose Berrios left in the eighth inning but scored twice in the 10th and crowned the Royals 5-3. Minny’s power lineup collecting three homers on day. Cards, ahead 4-0, held on to top the Angels 4-2 in rainy St. Louis. Dakota Hudson went seven for the W. Marcell Ozuna with a two-run blast. Double play shaves debt to -298 hrbeks.
