D-Backs Have A Knack For Winning Series Openers

The Arizona Diamondbacks open a short two-game set with the Detroit Tigers Tuesday in hopes of making up some space in the congested NL West. The D-back could be in a good spot, as the squad has gone 7-2 SU in their past nine series openers but they have dropped two of their past three.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against the Tigers.
  • The Diamondbacks are hitting .219 on the road this season.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Tigers' last 6 games with 1 day off between games.

Zack Greinke gets the start for the D-backs coming off one of his shortest outings of the season. The 13-year veteran lasted just 5.0 innings while giving up seven hits and three runs against a terrible San Diego offense. Greinke has struggled more away from Chase Field this season with a 3.90 ERA on the road compared to 2.77 at home.

The Tigers counter with Buck Farmer who has been a revelation so far. The lefty has not allowed a run through his first 13.0 innings of work in the majors this season while posting a K/BB ratio of 16/3. Farmer hasn’t exactly faced the best offensive teams in the MLB but he clearly has momentum on his side.
