Can D-Backs Finally Get One Over Dodgers?

The Arizona Diamondbacks find themselves streaking with six wins in their past seven games but a date with the Los Angeles Dodgers might derail that streak. The D-backs are 1-6 in the past seven games against the Dodgers while averaging just 3.3 runs per game, more than a run less than their season average.

Shark Bites
  • The current Diamondbacks lineup is 9-for-61 with 25 K’s collectively against Rich Hill.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Dodgers’ last 7 games against the Diamondbacks.
  • The Diamondbacks are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games when opening a series.

The D-backs will send Zack Godley, who has been a steady presence for the club, to the bump. Godley has held opponents to three earned runs or less in five of his past six starts but has found himself getting a lack of run support. The 27-year-old has performed well against the Dodgers this season with a 2.92 ERA in two outings against a top-five offense.  

Dodgers starter Rich Hill is coming off one of the best “losses” you’ll ever see. The 37-year-old had a perfect game heading into the ninth inning and a no-hitter into the 10th before giving up a walk-off solo home run. The southpaw has been red-hot over the past two months with a 2.25 ERA while holding opponents to a .183 batting average since the beginning of July.
