Pitching Match Up

Arizona: Robbie Ray (15-5, 2.89 ERA)
L.A.: Rich Hill (12-8, 3.32 ERA)

Robbie Ray goes for the Diamondbacks tonight and in his last start he was taken out in the 2nd inning after giving up one run in case the club needed him in the Wild Card game. The Diamondbacks have won his last nine starts and in his last four outings he has not given up more than one earned run. In Ray’s five starts against the Dodgers this season Arizona is 4-1 and in the last three outings against them he has only given up a total of three earned runs. In his last start against them he pitched a gem going seven innings and not giving up any runs and only allowing three hits in a 13-0 Arizona win. Overall, the Diamondbacks have won 20 of Ray’s last 28 starts, but they are only 5-13 in his last 18 road starts against a team with a winning record.

Rich Hill gets the nod for the Dodgers and in his last start of the regular season he was stellar not giving up any runs and only allowing two hits in a 10-0 win over the San Diego Padres. After losing four straight with him on the mound the Dodgers have won his last three starts where he has totaled 18 innings and only given up two earned runs. In four starts against the Diamondbacks this season Hill went 0-3 with an ERA of 5.03 and L.A. has lost four of his last five starts against them. The Dodgers are 7-2 in Hill’s last nine starts after a Quality Start in his previous outing, but they have lost five of his last six home starts against a team with a winning record.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. L.A. Dodgers Prediction

The Diamondbacks had won two in a row before losing the first game of this series. While they rank 3rd in the Majors in team ERA they have given up 17 runs in their last two games. Arizona had won six straight against the Dodgers before losing Game 1. The Dodgers took the first game of this series and they have won three in a row and seven of their last eight games. They have to be confident going into Game 2 winning the first game even though Ace Clayton Kershaw had a shaky outing. Ray has dominated the Dodgers in his last three starts facing them and Arizona is 5-1 in his last six starts against L.A. While Hill has pitched great in his last three starts he has struggled facing the Diamondbacks this season. Hill will not be lit up in this game, but he will give up a few runs while Ray will have another great start facing L.A. The Diamondbacks will take this game behind a strong performance from Ray and even the series at 1-1.
