Los Angeles is 6-2 in game two of a series, 18-8 in their last 26 games, and 61-29 in their last 90 home games. Arizona is 5-1 on the road against a left-handed starter, 11-25 against a team with a winning record, and 0-5 in Ray’s last five road starts. Arizona is 10-27 in the last 37 meetings of these two.
The Diamondbacks got the best of it on Monday but Wood has pitched well recently and I expect the Dodgers to get the win here.
