D-Backs Can’t Get It Done in St. Louis

If the Arizona Diamondbacks want to claw their way towards .500, they will need to do something they have struggled with during their weekend series with the Cardinals – win in St. Louis. The D-backs have dropped their past seven outings in the Gateway to the West and haven’t won a series at Busch Stadium since 2003.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 3-15 SU in their past 18 against the Cardinals.
  • The Cardinals are 3-10 SU in their past 13 games following a home win.
  • Stephen Piscotty is 6-for-8 with three extra-base hits in the past two games.

Patrick Corbin will take the bump for the D-backs, which is a good sign considering his play on the road this season. Corbin has a 1.80 ERA while giving up just five earned runs through 25.0 innings pitched away from home this year.

After a stellar first month of the season, Carlos Martinez has hit the skids in May. The youngster has a 5.40 ERA while registering a loss in each of his three starts this month.
