The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a nice home win in order to get a game above a .500 record. The Diamondbacks pitching staff has allowed seven or more runs in four of their last five games, a number that must reduce if they’re going to be contenders this season. The Arizona Diamondbacks are 3-10 this season when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jean Segura leads Arizona with 33 hits, Yasmany Tomas has 12 RBI and Paul Goldschmidt has five home runs. Patrick Corbin takes the hill, and he’s 1-2 with a 3.51 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. This will be Corbin’s second career game against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 21-10 in Wainwrights last 31 starts vs. National League West. The Diamondbacks are 3-8 in their last 11 Wednesday games and 4-9 in Corbins last 13 home starts. The Cardinals are 5-2 in Wainwrights last 7 starts vs. Diamondbacks.
The Cards have really teed off on the Diamondbacks in this series, and they now have their ace on the hill who is eager to get his first victory of the season. I like the Cardinals in this spot given the way they're hitting the ball.
