The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Diamondbacks have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Diamondbacks have won four of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads Arizona with 94 hits and 62 RBI while A.J. Pollock and Ender Inciarte have combined for 56 RBI. The Arizona Diamondbacks have split their last six home games. Allen Webster takes the hill, and he’s 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. This will be Webster’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 7-3 in their last 10 Monday games and 6-2 in Bolsingers last 8 starts as a favorite. The Diamondbacks are 17-36 in their last 53 Monday games and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Arizona and 23-6 in the last 29 meetings overall.
The Dodgers are starting to find their groove a bit, and they've owned the DBacks over the years. With Bolsinger on the hill, I like the road team to take game one.
