Arizona Diamondbacks vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I’ll probably go with the Diamondbacks here. Pfaadt has been doing pretty well on the mound lately. He’s 1-1 in his last three starts combined, giving up six earned runs on 11 hits and five walks in 19.0 total innings. Pfaadt will need some backup from the Arizona offense, though. Considering the Diamondbacks have scored one run or fewer in two of their last three games that might be a tall order.

Texas has nine combined runs over their last two games, so if the Rangers can get their bats going this matchup will be interesting.
