The Philadelphia Phillies and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Chase Field. 

The Phillies come into this game with a 72-56 record overall but on Sunday they really struggled. The offense only managed four runs and zero runs, and that led to the 5-0 defeat by the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Phillies' offense overall has been the strength, averaging 4.63 runs per game which is seventh in the league. Kyle Schwarber has hit 35 home runs and driven in 73 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Diamondbacks and they sit with a 59-67 record overall but they are coming off a series sweep against the Chicago White Sox. Overall this season the Diamondbacks are averaging 4.45 runs per game which is 16th in the league. Christian Walker is having a big season hitting 30 home runs and driving in 72 RBIs. 

On the mound for the Phillies will be Ranger Suarez who sits with an 9-5 record and an ERA of 3.38. In his last start against the Reds, he went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and three runs.

On the mound for the Diamondbacks will be Madison Bumgarner who sits with a 6-13 record and an ERA of 4.53. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, he went 5.1 innings giving up seven hits and five runs. 

The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in their last four games against the National League East. The under is 7-0 in the Phillies' last seven road games against a left-handed starter. The over is 4-0 in the Diamondback's last four home games against a left-handed starter. The under is 4-0 in Bumgarner’s last four starts against a National League East. 

This game is going to have plenty of runs here. Bumgarner sits with an ERA of 4.53 and the Phillies are going to tee off on him here. Suarez not be blown up but he is going to give up at least three or four runs. Look for this game to be high scoring and the over is going to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
