The Arizona Diamondbacks are one of the better teams to miss the playoffs this year and we saw it once again in their win on Thursday. Adam Eaton, Paul Goldschmidt, Aaron Hill, and Miguel Montero each had two hits as the D-backs scored four runs on 10 hits. Starting pitcher Trevor Cahill allowed six hits and two earned runs to get the win and Brad Ziegler earned the save. For Friday’s game, Diamondbacks start Patrick Corbin, who 13-5 with a 2.96 ERA for the season and 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his last three starts.
San Francisco is 6-16 in their last 22 home games, 7-17 against a left-handed starter, and 2-10 in their last 12 home games against a team with a losing road record. Arizona is 3-5 in their last eight games overall, 2-6 in their last six road games, and 9-3 in Corbin’s last 12 starts. Arizona is 4-9 in the last 13 meetings of these two.
While the total is reasonable, it looks to be a bit low and my free pick is on the over. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that pick in the Premium Area.
