Philadelphia Phillies -143 / Arizona Diamondbacks +133 O/U: 9
The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Philadelphia Phillies will match up on the MLB diamond to continue their series Tuesday.
In the Monday opener of this set, the Diamondbacks scored three runs int he first and 10 more as the game went on to take a high-flying 13-8 win.
For the Tuesday matchup, the Diamondbacks will send out Jon Duplantier in the start. Over his 22.0 innings and 1-0 record this year, Duplantier has a 3.27 ERA with 23 Ks and eight walks.
Arizona put up 14 hits in the win on Monday. The top hitter in the lineup was Eduardo Escobar with four hits, five RBI, three runs and a pair of homers.
Over on the Phillies’ side, they’re going with Jake Arrieta in the start Tuesday. Across 79.2 innings and a 5-5 record this year, Arrieta has a 4.29 ERA with 65 Ks and 32 BBs.
Philly put up a respectable total of 13 hits in the Monday loss, but couldn’t keep up on the other side. Scott Kingery went off in that one with two homers, three hits, three runs and two RBI.
The Diamondbacks are 40-19 in their last 59 Tuesday games and 3-7 in their last 10 in game two of a series. The under is 19-7-3 in Arizona’s last 29 Tuesday games and 13-5-1 in their last 19 in game two of a series.
Philly is 4-1 in the last five in game two of a series and 3-8 in Arrieta’s last 11 starts with five days’ rest. Philadelphia is 1-4 in Arrieta’s last five starts versus the NL West and the under is 7-2 in their last nine in game two of a series.
Duplantier has just the two starts to his credit this year, and has mostly been good in a relief capacity otherwise. In his pair of starts, Duplantier has given up five earned on nine hits in 10.0 innings.
As for Arrieta, he’s had it rough over his last pair with 10 earned in 9.2 innings on 17 hits (and five homers given up). He’s been pretty spotty since late-April or so in all honesty.
Duplantier doesn’t have enough big-league experience for me to be super confident with him at the moment, but I think the Diamondbacks have a good shot at taking one here.
