Oakland Athletics vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I'm not excited to get behind Slade Cecconi and the juice, but we have nowhere else to go. The Oakland Athletics are a bottom five team in baseball and were just swept by the Angels. The Athletics can't string together offense, and it's not like JP Sears is going to save the day on the pitching side of things. Sears isn't good on his best day, and he's having a terrible month of June. This series is a gift for the Diamondbacks to inch closer toward a .500 record. Give me the Diamondbacks and the juice if forced to pick this game.
