Los Angeles Dodgers vs Arizona Diamondbacks

Where: Chase Field

When: Wednesday, June 26, 2019, 3:40 pm Eastern

We have a National League West MLB matchup to discuss when the Los Angeles Dodgers face the Arizona Diamondbacks for game three of their three-game series. This preview was written prior to the conclusion of Tuesday night MLB action and all opinions are based on the stats from Monday night’s MLB slate of games.

The Dodgers are first in the National League West and plans for righty Tony Gonsolin to make his MLB debut against Arizona. The Diamondbacks is third in the NL West and scheduled righty Taylor Clarke to pitch against the Dodgers. I’m the Flash and will be discussing this game with you today.

Gonsolin Making MLB Debut Wednesday

The Dodgers had a four-game winning streak snapped in game one of this series but has won seven of their last ten games and has a 20-17 record away from Dodger Stadium this season. Los Angeles has outscored its opponents by an MLB leading 130 runs this season and leading the way with a team-leading 25 bombs, 62 RBI and a club-high .353 batting average in NL MVP favorite, infielder Cody Bellinger.

Los Angeles isn’t listing any significant injuries for their matchup with Arizona.

Gonsolin is making his MLB debut on Wednesday afternoon and he’ll be up against an Arizona offense that scores 4.4 runs per game and has clubbed 41 home runs at Chase Field this season. Arizona has a low strikeout an average walk rate and boasts a .184 ISO and wRC+ of 96 against righties this season.

Diamondbacks Two Game Winning Streak

Arizona has struggled and has lost seven of their last ten games but enter Tuesday night’s matchup with Los Angeles riding a two-game winning streak. The Diamondbacks have outscored their opponents by 42 runs and has a 16-21 record at Chase Field this season. Outfielder Ketel Marte leads Arizona with 20 home runs and a team-high .312 batting average infielder Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 59 RBI this season.

The Diamondbacks aren’t reporting any significant injuries for their series with the Dodgers.

Clarke (1-3, 6.48 ERA) has a 1.56 WHIP and his 5.47 xFIP suggests maybe some positive regression is in store for Clarke at some point this season. Clarke strikes out 7.56 per nine innings pitched while allowing 2.97 walks and 2.16 home runs per nine innings pitched. Clarke might be in big trouble Wednesday against a Dodgers team scoring 4.8 runs per game with 46 home runs away from Dodger Stadium this season. Los Angeles boasts a .219 ISO and wRC+ of 122 against righties with a low strikeout and high walk rate that could give Clarke fits Wednesday afternoon.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I like the Dodgers on Wednesday and one of the main reasons is the offense. Los Angeles rakes and for reasons only known to the Diamondbacks, they don’t play well and don’t score many runs at Chase Field. Gonsolin might be a rookie but the Dodgers have had so much success over the years with their rookies that its hard to believe Gonsolin isn’t going to pitch well. Clarke hasn’t pitched well and I think the Dodgers score enough runs to make up for any mishaps Gonsolin may or may not have,

Cash with the Flash and play the Dodgers to beat Arizona.

Prediction: Dodgers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I’m feeling some runs will get scored on Wednesday afternoon and whatever the total is, these two clubs will exceed that number. Clarke has a high xFIP and Gonsolin is probably going to allow a few runs of his own on a hot day in Phoenix. Umpire Alan Porter is behind the plate on Wednesday and these trends stuck out like a sore thumb;

  • Over is 12-2 in Porters last 14 games behind home plate.
  • Over is 4-1 in Porters last 5 games behind home plate vs. Los Angeles.

Cash with the Flash and play OVER on Wednesday!!

Prediction: Over
