The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 104 hits and 52 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and David Peralta have combined for 182 hits and 109 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 7-8 with a 4.00 ERA and 79 strikeouts this season. This will be Kelly’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Dodgers have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 103 hits and 68 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 161 hits and 91 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 8-1 with a 3.43 ERA and 104 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 1-0 with a 3.47 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 8-3 in their last 11 Wednesday games, 3-13 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Kellys last 5 starts with 4 days of rest. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 42-12 in their last 54 home games and 6-1 in Buehlers last 7 starts. The Diamondbacks are 15-37 in the last 52 meetings in Los Angeles. The under is 4-1 in Buehlers last 5 starts overall. The under is 7-2 in Kellys last 9 starts overall.
Kelly is coming off a strong month of June where he allowed 12 earned runs in 39.1 innings and had 34 strikeouts. However, Kelly does have a 4.99 ERA and .262 allowed batting average on the road this season. Buehler has been money pretty much all season for the Dodgers, and he's been at his best at home where he has a 3.05 ERA and .185 allowed batting average. The Diamondbacks are also coming off a brutal loss Tuesday night, the type of performance that could have a carryover impact. I'm siding with the Dodgers and the RL for added value.
