Diamondbacks-Giants Preview

(AP) -- Though rookie Chris Heston has softened the blow of Matt Cain's absence, a lack of hitting has the San Francisco Giants on the cusp of their longest slide in nearly nine years.

Heston looks to give the Giants another strong effort on the mound as San Francisco tries to end an offensive slump Saturday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

With Cain starting the season on the disabled list with a right forearm injury, Heston (1-1, 0.69 ERA) allowed two unearned runs and three hits in six innings of a 5-2 win over Arizona on April 8. The right-hander followed that up five days later by yielding two runs - one earned - in seven innings, but his teammates managed five hits and went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position in a 2-0 loss to Colorado.
