Shane’s Free Pick

There were 20 total runs scored in Monday’s Diamondbacks game and there will be no shortage of scoring in this game. Pfaadt is on the mound for the Diamondbacks and he currently sits with an ERA of 7.71. The Dodgers are going to chase him early and then continue to beat up on the bullpen. Urias hasn’t been exactly dominant this year also, and the Diamondbacks bats will get back on the right track. Back the over to cash here.
