The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning six of their last nine games. The Dodgers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in four of their last five games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense has heated up recently, and they’ve won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 167 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 78 RBI and Justin Turner has 25 home runs. Ross Stripling takes the hill, and he’s 3-6 with a 4.15 ERA and 57 strikeouts this season. Stripling is 0-0 with a 3.72 ERA and six strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 1-6 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in Millers last 4 starts. The Dodgers are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in Striplings last 4 starts. The Diamondbacks are 7-21 in the last 28 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Diamondbacks pitching staff continues to struggle and that's bad news with the Dodgers offense heating up. Arizona just saw its ace get rocked, so I'm not sure how you can be confident in Miller. Give me the Dodgers at home for another W.
