Arizona is 1-5 in their last 6 games and 19-52 in their last 71 game three’s of a series. The under is 8-3 in Arizona’s last 11 games. Cincinnati is 3-12 in their last 15 Wednesday games and 16-37 in their last 53 games against the NL West. The under is 5-3 in Cincinnati’s last 8 games. Arizona is 5-2 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
Mike Minor’s first start of the season was not good, as he allowed five runs over four innings pitched against the Nationals. For the Diamondbacks, Kelly has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his last three starts. I like the Diamondbacks to win this game as they have the better starting pitcher.
