Can the Dodgers Exit a Season-Worst Slump?

Another loss last night extended the Dodgers’ streak to a season-worst four in a row and gave them a second consecutive series L. They’ll attempt to avoid the sweep in Arizona this afternoon when they call upon Kenta Maeda (12-5, 3.76 ERA) but with Zack Greinke (15-6, 3.14 ERA) stepping up for the D-backs, the Dodgers’ bleeding could continue.

SHARK BITES
  • The Diamondbacks are 10-1 SU in Zack Greinke’s last 11 starts at Chase Field.
  • Corey Seager is 6-for-11 against Greinke with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs.
  • The visiting team is 2-6 SU in its last 8 games in this matchup.

Greinke’s struggles on the road have been well documented, but at home he’s a different pitcher entirely. In 15 starts at Chase Field this season, the 33-year-old has a 12-1 record, an ERA of 2.36 and he’s struck out 116 batters in 99 innings of work.

He has, however, been crushed by his former team since being dealt to the Snakes, allowing 13 runs and 20 hits in 17.2 innings of work against the Blue Crew.

Pitching wonderfully in his last seven starts, Maeda has seen his worst performances of the year come against the D-backs (7.07 ERA in three starts) and he could be watching that 2.52 ERA since the all-star game climb this afternoon.

With an opening total of 9, you’d be wise to consider an OVER given the lack of success these pitchers have had against today’s lineups.
