Arizona Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers Prediction

Ryne Nelson has been awful this season, which includes an ERA over 7, and he's allowing a .347 batting average on the road. Those numbers aren't what you want to see when going up against this Dodgers lineup. Tyler Glasnow has been solid this season, and that includes leading MLB in strikeouts. A complete pitching mismatch in this spot, and it forces my hand to side with the Dodgers at home. Give me the Dodgers and the RL to shave down the juice in game 3 against the Diamondbacks.
