The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Thursday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Dodgers have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 50 hits and 33 RBI while Corey Seager and AJ Pollock have combined for 89 hits and 52 RBI. Dustin May gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.88 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. This will be May’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 15 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Diamondbacks have lost 14 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 47 hits and 14 RBI while David Peralta and Christian Walker have combined for 86 hits and 53 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 8.44 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 15-14 with a 2.72 ERA and 218 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 40-14 in their last 54 games as a favorite, 37-14 in their last 51 Thursday games and 40-15 in their last 55 overall. The Diamondbacks are 1-4 in their last 5 Thursday games, 1-6 in their last 7 home games and 4-17 in their last 21 overall. The over is 9-3-1 in Dodgers last 13 road games. The under is 14-5 in Diamondbacks last 19 overall. The Dodgers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Arizona and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
Dustin May has allowed 11 runs and 25 hits in his last 33 innings while Madison Bumgarner has allowed 15 earned runs and 15 hits in his last 10.1 innings. Bumgarner has been awful this season to say the least, and he's pitching for a Diamondbacks squad that just doesn't have the offensive firepower to back him up. For me there's really only one way to go here, and that's siding with the Dodgers and the RL.
