My predictions record on the season is now 10-5. You can see my previous picks here. I like the Diamondbacks-Dodgers match-up this evening.
Tonight’s chosen match-up: Arizona Diamondbacks (59-81) @ Los Angeles Dodgers (78-62)
The Arizona Diamondbacks arrive in Los Angeles on a 2 game winning streak. The team was victorious yesterday 5-1 at San Diego. Pitcher Randall Delgado recorded the win with 5 innings pitched allowing 0 earned runs on 2 hits. The D-Backs are currently in 4th place in the NL West, 19 games behind the leading Dodgers. Their starting pitcher tonight is lefty Vidal Nuno. Nuno has a 2-9 record with a 4.46 era and 109 strikeouts in 139.1 innings pitched. He hasn’t recorded a win in his last 11 starts. His last win came when he was with the Yankees on June 27th versus the Red Sox. The Los Angeles Dodgers enter this series losers of their last 2 series. They’ve lost 4 of their last 6 games. On Wednesday they were defeated 8-5 at home versus the Nationals. Starting pitcher Kevin Correia suffered his 16th loss of the season. The team is currently in 1st place in the NL West, 2 games ahead of the 2nd place Giants. Their starting pitcher tonight is right-handed Dan Haren. Haren has an 11-10 record with a 4.27 era and 118 strikeouts in 156 innings pitched. He has 3 wins in his last 5 starts. He got a no-decision in his last outing as he pitched 6 innings and allowed 0 earned runs on 5 hits.
The Dodgers are 12-4 versus the Diamondbacks this season. The Diamondbacks are 30-38 on the road this season. The Dodgers are 35-34 at home this season.
Diamondbacks vs Dodgers Prediction
The Dodgers have had the Diamondbacks’ number this season and I don’t see any reason why that won’t continue this evening.
