The Arizona Diamondbacks looked like they were stuck in mud on Monday as they couldn’t get it going losing to the Dodgers. Ender Inciarte had two hits and A.J. Pollock and Cliff Pennington each had hits as the Diamondbacks scored three runs on five hits. Starting pitcher Rubby De La Rosa allowed 10 hits and nine runs while striking out four over 5.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 4-3 for the season. For Tuesday’s game the Diamondbacks start Robbie Ray who has allowed 11 hits and run while striking out nine over 11.0 innings for a 1-0 record and a 0,82 ERA.
Los Angeles is 8-3 in game two of a series, 38-16 in their last 54 home games, and 1-4 in Frias’ last five starts. Arizona is 17-36 in their last 53 road games, 4-1 in Tuesday games, and 16-36 against a team with a winning record. Arizona is 6-21 in the last 27 meetings of these two.
The Dodgers are just tough at home and despite Frias’ not being able to get wins, I expect them to get the win here.
