Shane’s Free Pick
This game is going to be lower scoring. Irvin has pitched really well heading into this game, and the Diamondbacks bats are going to continue to stay ice cold. Davies is also coming off a start where it looked liek he finally started to figure it out, and he’s going to have a strong start in this game. Both of these offenses are going to struggle to get going here, and the under is going to cash.
