Chase Field Has Been An Impenetrable Fortress For D-Backs

The Arizona Diamondbacks continue their 10-game homestand when they open a series with the inconsistent St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday. Coming to the desert and winning has been nearly impossible, as the D-backs have the best home record in baseball with wins in 14 of their past 16 at Chase Field.

SHARK BITES
  • Paul Goldschmidt is 2-for-10 with no extra-base hits in his career against Carlos Martinez.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Cardinals' last 7 games against the Diamondbacks.
  • The Cardinals are 16-5 SU in their last 21 games against the Diamondbacks.

Taijuan Walker will get his 12th start of the season in the series opener. The 24-year-old has been dealing with a pesky blister on his throwing hand that has caused him to miss several starts this season but he has been great when he does take the bump. Walker has a 2.97 ERA and has only allowed two home runs in his six starts since the beginning of May.

After a tough first month of the season, Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez has found his form. The righty has a 2.13 ERA while holding opponents to a .179 batting average across his past 10 starts. Cards fans should feel confident with Martinez on the mound today, as he has a career 2.86 ERA in four starts and three relief appearances against the D-backs.
