The Diamondbacks have lost eight straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 42 hits and 10 RBI while Christian Walker and David Peralta have combined for 74 hits and 44 RBI. Alex Young gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.70 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Young is 0-1 with a 5.25 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have won 14 of their last 16 games when scoring four or more runs.

The Diamondbacks are 6-2 in their last 8 games following an off day, 1-8 in their last 9 games following a loss and 1-10 in their last 11 overall. The Dodgers are 20-6 in their last 26 Tuesday games, 40-14 in their last 54 games as a favorite and 38-15 in their last 53 games following an off day. The under is 9-2 in Diamondbacks last 11 overall. The over is 4-1-2 in Dodgers last 7 games following an off day. The Diamondbacks are 16-41 in the last 57 meetings in Los Angeles.
Alex Young has allowed 11 runs and 20 hits in his last 19 innings while Julio Urias has allowed 10 runs and 23 hits in his last 22 innings. The Dodgers shouldn't be lying this sort of number with Urias on the hill, but this line is all about the form of both teams. The Arizona Diamondbacks can't buy a victory with losses in 10 of their last 11 games and they just traded away some key pieces. The Los Angeles Dodgers remain one of the hottest teams in the league and have dominated the Diamondbacks over the years.
Only way for me to go here is to take the Dodgers and the RL.
