The Los Angeles Dodgers look to add another to the win column versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks don't have a whole lot of goals given their record but every win they can get against a contender and especially a division rival. The Diamondbacks gave the Dodgers everything they had before the pen gave up some late runs in a 5-2 defeat. Chase Anderson served up a two run homer in the first before settling down to go six innings. Daniel Hudson absorbed the loss with three 8th inning runs scored while the offense could only muster RBI's from Cody Ross and AJ Pollock. Trevor Cahill looks to reverse his fortunes when he opposes the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday. Cahill has struggled over his last three with an 0-2 record with a 7.24 ERA on a 2.20 WHIP.

The Los Angeles Dodgers would like nothing more then to string a bunch of wins together and give themselves some breathing room in the National League West. The Dodgers picked up a big win Saturday with San Francisco also winning. Hyun-Jin Ryu was at the top of his game with both runs scored on seven hits through 6.2 innings while striking out nine. The offense produced seven hits but they were clutch with Adrian Gonzalez going deep and knocking in two while Hanley Ramirez doubled in a pair. The Dodgers look for a big performance on the mound from Zack Greinke who faces the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday. Greinke is 13-8 on the season with a 2.72 ERA over 27 outings.
The Dodgers have not been able to shake San Francisco in the NL West so every win is crucial at this point. I'll back Greinke and Los Angeles and hope Cahill struggles at least one more time...
