The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers face off in a National League West showdown at Dodger Stadium. On Tuesday, it was the Dodgers who were able to get the best of the Diamondbacks coming away with a 6-3 victory.
The Diamondbacks have had some real issues this season and coming into this game they have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games the Diamondbacks have scored only six runs total, and that isn’t enough, especially as good of a team as the Dodgers. The Diamondbacks did score two runs in the 9th inning, Nick Ahmed was the best player in the last game having one hit and driving in two RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Dodgers who are one of the best teams in baseball and coming into this game they have won three games in a row. Each of the last three games the Diamondbacks have scored at least six runs. On Tuesday, the star of the show was Chris Taylor who drove in four RBI’s. The offense getting out to a fast start would be great for their chances.
Zac Gallen will get the start for the Diamondbacks and coming into this game he sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 2.09.
Walker Buehler will get the start for the Dodgers and coming into this game he sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 4.32.
The Diamondbacks are 1-10 in their last 11 games played on grass. The over is 6-1-1 in the Diamondbacks last eight games played on Wednesday. The over is 7-2 in the Dodgers last 10 Wednesday games. The Dodgers are 66-24 in their last 91 home games. The Dodgers are 38-15 in their ast 53 games played on grass.
Buehler has been okay for the Dodgers, but he isn’t been great. Look for Gallen to lock down for the Diamondbacks and that will be enough for the visiting squad to come away with a victory. In terms of the total, it's a lean to the over, but the better play is with te D-Backs.
