The Dodgers are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. National League West and 7-3 in their last 10 games on grass. The Diamondbacks are 7-15 in their last 22 during game 1 of a series and 3-7 in Bradleys last 10 home starts. The Dodgers are 39-15 in the last 54 meetings.
The Diamondbacks have a quick turnaround after playing late Wednesday night, and now they run into a red hot Hill who hasn't allowed a run for the Dodgers in 19 innings of work since being traded from Oakland. The Dodgers have to be the play here even if Arizona has heated up offensively.
