Opposites clash when Diamondbacks visit Giants

Apr 16, 2008 - 12:47 PM Arizona (10-4) at San Francisco (6-9) 3:45 pm EDT

SAN FRANCISCO (Ticker) - Arizona Diamondbacks' righthander Brandon Webb is what the San Francisco Giants thought they were getting when they signed Barry Zito - a staff ace.

Webb and Zito meet on Wednesday as the Diamondbacks aim to take the rubber game of a three-game series with the Giants.

The 2006 Cy Young Award winner, Webb (3-0, 2.14 ERA) is coming off his best outing of the season. He allowed just two runs and four hits in eight innings during an 8-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday.

Webb has allowed just five earned runs in his first 21 innings this season.

Meanwhile, Zito (0-3, 4.50) has done nothing but disappoint since arriving in the Bay Area last season. The former Cy Young Award winner went 11-13 with a 4.53 ERA last season after signing a seven-year, $136 million contract.

Zito allowed four runs - one earned - and seven hits in six innings of a 8-2 loss to St. Louis on Friday.
