Citizens Bank Park
The Line: Arizona Diamondbacks +115 / Philadelphia Phillies -135 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Arizona Diamondbacks and Philadelphia Phillies meet Monday in MLB action at Citizens Bank Park.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Diamondbacks have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won six straight games when scoring more than one run. Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 74 hits and 49 RBI while Ketel Marte and David Peralta have combined for 135 hits and 80 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 4.43 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. This will be Clarke’s first career game against the Phillies.
The Philadelphia Phillies look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Phillies have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last eight games. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost eight straight games when scoring three or less runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 65 hits and 29 RBI while Jean Segura and Rhys Hoskins have combined for 126 hits and 70 RBI. Jerad Eickhoff gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 4.14 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Eickhoff is 0-1 with a 3.24 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 3-7 in their last 10 games on grass and 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games. The Phillies are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series, 23-48 in their last 71 Monday games and 6-2 in Eickhoff's last 8 starts. The Diamondbacks are 9-1 in the last 10 meetings in Philadelphia and 7-2 in the last 9 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Eickhoff's last 5 home starts. The under is 5-2 in Diamondbacks last 7 overall.
Clarke has been more than hittable in his last four starts, especially on the road where he has an ERA of 4.67 and a .262 allowed batting average. Eickhoff has given up three or more earned runs in each of his last five starts and has had serious trouble keeping the ball inside the park in those games. I'm not thrilled with this pitching matchup, but I have slightly more confidence in the veteran Eickhoff on the mound at home. The Philadelphia Phillies offense is also due for a breakout performance, as this slump they're currently in can't continue for much longer.
