Reality Setting In For The Diamondbacks?

After starting the season 14-8, reality may be setting in for the Arizona Diamondbacks with the team going 4-7 in its past 11 games. Of course, six of those losses came against quality competition in the Colorado Rockies and Washington Nationals, but one has to wonder if the D-backs’ bubble may be bursting. The D-backs and Detroit Tigers kick off a two-game set at Chase Field on Tuesday.

SHARK BITES
  • Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is expected back in the lineup after missing the past 3 games.
  • The Tigers are 6-1 against the runline in their last 7 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Diamondbacks' last 5 games.

Robbie Ray is having the best season of his young career, as the lefty has a 3.47 ERA while averaging 12.1 K/9. Despite some fantastic performances in his past two starts, which includes recording 19 strikeouts in 12.2 innings, Ray has been tabbed with two losses thanks to an Arizona offense that scored one run in each contest.

The Tigers will counter with Justin Verlander, who has rounded into fine form recently. In each of Verlander’s past two starts, he has gone 7.0 innings while only surrendering a combined two earned runs. However, Verlander has plain sucked on the road with an 8.80 ERA in three starts away from Detroit this season.
