The Diamondbacks offense has been strong as of late but at times it’s been the pitching that has let them down and that was the case on Monday. In the last two wins the Diamondbacks were able to score 15 runs total but in this game the pitching staff needs to be better.
After a slow start the A’s have played better as of late and they have to feel good with how the offense looked on Monday. Jed Lowrie was the star of the show for the A’s driving in three RBI’s. If the offense is good in this game the Athletics will be in good shape
