The Arizona Diamondbacks and Oakland Athletics meet Wednesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum. The Diamondbacks need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Athletics look for a win after winning five of their last six games.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Diamondbacks have lost eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Pavin Smith leads the Diamondbacks with 63 hits and 21 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 109 hits and 71 RBI. Matt Peacock gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 4.68 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. This will be Peacock’s second career game against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Athletics have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Mark Canha leads the Athletics with 56 hits and 22 RBI while Matt Olson and Jed Lowrie have combined for 105 hits and 68 RBI. Sean Manaea gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 3.36 ERA and 70 strikeouts this season. Manaea is 1-1 with a 7.00 ERA and six strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 13-39 in their last 52 road games and 0-6 in their last 6 Wednesday games. The Athletics are 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 40-19 in their last 59 Wednesday games. The over is 8-2 in Diamondbacks last 10 overall. The under is 4-0 in Athletics last 4 home games. The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.
The Diamondbacks continue to pile up the losses at an alarming rate and the pitching staff gets rocked time and time again. The Athletics are enjoying a strong week and Manaea is getting stronger with more reps. I want nothing to do with the Diamondbacks. Give me the A’s and the RL for max betting value.
