The Arizona Diamondbacks are having a miserable season but they got the win on Saturday in Chicago. Cody Ross had three hits and A.J. Pollock, Martin Prado, and Chris Owings each had two hits as the Diamondbacks scored four runs on 12 hits. Starting pitcher Wade Miley allowed four hits and two runs while striking out six over 7.0 innings to get the win to go to 3-3 and Addison Reed earned his 11th save. For Sunday’s game the Diamondbacks start Chase Anderson who was brought up from the minors. In Mobile Anderson was 4-2 with a 0.69 ERA allowing three runs and 22 hits while striking out 38 over 39 innings.
Chicago is 5-0 as an underdog, 5-2 in their last seven games, and 5-0 in game three of a series. Arizona is 15-29 in their last 44 games, 2-8 as a favorite, and 2-4 in their last six interleague road games. Arizona is 2-4 in their last six games against the White Sox.
Noesi just isn’t viable option and really based on that alone I have to give the edge to Arizona here.
