The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Arizona Diamondbacks need a win after losing 11 of their last 12 games. The Diamondbacks have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Diamondbacks have lost nine straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 43 hits and 10 RBI while Christian Walker and David Peralta have combined for 74 hits and 44 RBI. Zac Gallen gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 2.09 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. Gallen is 0-1 with a 3.31 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Dodgers have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have won 15 of their last 17 games when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 40 hits and 26 RBI while Corey Seager and Justin Turner have combined for 71 hits and 45 RBI.

Will update with trends once they're released.
Zac Gallen has allowed seven runs and 24 hits in his last 33 innings, and he's allowing a .201 batting average and .272 on base percentage on the season. Walker Buehler has allowed 10 earned runs and 14 hits in his last 21.1 innings, and he's allowing a .185 batting average and .265 on base percentage on the season. The Arizona Diamondbacks will have some value here in the underdog role based on how good Gallen has been this season, but they're a tough team to get behind given the lack of offense and losses in 11 of their last 12 tries. For me, this game is either the Dodgers RL or pass. These clubs are in completely different leagues right now.
