Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Philadelphia Phillies and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Chase Field. On Monday the Phillies jumped out to a 7-0 lead, but the Diamondbacks scored 13 straight runs to secure a 13-7 victory. 

The Phillies sit with a 73-56 record overall but they need to forget about what happened on Monday with their pitching. The Phillies' strength this season has been the offense and they are averaging 4.66 runs per game which is 7th best in baseball. The pitching staff is also ranked 10th in baseball. The Phillies need the pitching to be better in this game to get the job done. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Diamondbacks who sit with a 59-67 record overall and they have won four games in a row. The Diamondbacks offense is middle of the road, but their pitching has been an issue. The Diamondbacks are giving up 4.49 runs per game which is 20th in baseball. Christian Walker has hit 30 home runs and driven in 72 RBIs so far this season. 

On the mound for the Phillies is Aaron Nola who sits with a 9-10 record overall and an ERA of 3.08. In his last start against the Cincinnati Reds, he had a complete game giving up only five hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Diamondbacks is Zac Gallen who sits with a 9-2 record and an ERA of 2.66. In his last start against the Kansas City Royals, he went six innings giving up three hits and zero runs. 

The Phillies are 0-5 in Nola’s last five Tuesday starts. The over is 8-1 in Nola’s last nine Tuesday starts. The over is 6-1 in the DIamondbacks last seven starts overall. 

This game is going to be an old fashioned pitchers duel. Nola and Gallen have both been strong this season and they are each coming off a start where they gave up zero runs. Look for both team's bats to be ice cold here, and that will be the difference as this game stays under the total. Back the under to cash. 

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