The Philadelphia Phillies host the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday in the final game of a three-game series. The Diamondbacks won the series opener on Monday to improve to 35-32 while the Phillies fell to 37-29, not counting the results of Tuesday’s game. Right-hander Zach Eflin (6-5) gets the start for the Phillies while right-hander Merrill Kelly (6-6) is slated to get the start for the Diamondbacks. Game time is 7:05 p.m. Eastern at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

Diamondbacks set franchise record for homers

The Diamondbacks have won 5 straight games to improve to 35-32 and move into a virtual tie for second in the NL West. Their latest win came Monday against the Phillies, who they beat 13-8. The Diamondbacks hit a franchise record 8 home runs in this game. Eduardo Escobar had a monster game going 4 for 5 with 2 home runs and 5 RBIs. Ildemaro Vargas also had 2 home runs along with 3 RBIs. David Peralta, Ketel Marte, Alex Avila, and Jarrod Dyson also hit home runs. Zack Godley (3-4) got the win.

The Diamondbacks’ offense has been firing on all cylinders. They average 5.3 runs per game, which is 4th in the MLB, They are batting .258 as a team, which is 7th in the league, and they have a slugging percentage of .459, which is 4th. They are 6th in home runs. Peralta leads the D-backs with an average of .300 with 9 HRs and 36 RBIs, while Eduardo Escobar is hitting .299 with 17 HRs and 54 RBIs.

Phillies get bombed

The Phillies have lost 2 straight to fall to 37-29. The losses have dropped them a half game behind in Atlanta in the NL East. They are coming off a really bad loss to the Diamondbacks on Monday. Starter Jerad Eickhoff was bombed for 7 runs in 3 innings in a 13-8 loss to Arizona. The Phillies pitching gave up a ridiculous 8 home runs. The Phillies had 5 home runs themselves, but it wasn’t enough. Sean Kingery went 3 for 5 with 2 home runs and 2 RBIs, while Rhys Hoskins went 3 for 4 with a home run and 2 RBIs. Jean Segura and Jay Bruce also hit home runs for Philadelphia.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Take the Phillies here. The Phillies have been very mediocre in the month of June. But Eflin has been one of their most consistent pitchers and has been very good at home. He also has a good record in game 3s of series. After Monday’s embarrassing loss, the Phillies need a big win here to get back on track and I think Eflin will deliver.

Prediction: Philadelphia -140

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Take the under. This is a good pitching match up and after Monday’s slugfest, look for the series to close on a lower-scoring pitcher’s duel. Both of these hurlers have been solid in holding their opponents in check. The under is 4-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 vs. a team with a winning record and 4-1 in Kellys last 5 starts overall. Also, the under is 4-1 in Phillies last 5 home games and 6-2-1 in Eflins last 9 starts overall.

Prediction: Under
