The struggling Diamondbacks come into play the red hot Cubs.
The Cubs took game one of this series and have won 9 of their last 10 games.
They took game 1 10-0 and look to take game 2 as well.
The Diamondbacks have lost 3 of their last 4 and just haven’t been able to win consistently all season.
The D backs score a decent amount of runs, they average 4.5 a game and 10th in the Majors.
However, lately they’ve only scored 15 runs in their past 5 games.
They’ve given up 27 runs in that same 5 game span. They hit for a .265 average which is still 7th in the league so they can definitely hit.
The issue with this team is that they allow too many.
They give up 5.1 runs per game which is 4th worst in the league.
Escobar did not do any better in his first start of the season.
On May 30 he gave up 7 earned runs and last just 3.1 innings. He hopes to bounce back this game but I wouldn’t count on it against the Cubs.
The Cubs are on fire and there is no sign of them slowing down.
They took game 1 of this series with a late rally that blew the game wide open in the 8th winning 6-0.
They score a bunch of runs and are second best in the Majors.
They’ll look to put up bunch in this ball game too.
Hammel is on the mound for this one and that usually means a win for the Cubs. He’s 6-1 on the season with a 2.09 era. He’s been nothing short of impressive this year.
The Cubs as a team are first in runs allowed, just 2.9 a game. So even though the Diamondbacks can score pretty well, don’t count on it this game.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Diamondbacks have shown no consistency this season and are up against one of the leagues best pitchers.
Cubs also have one of the most lethal offences in the league against a pitcher that was horrendous in his first start.
Cubs should win with ease.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER
Arizona still hits pretty good so they’ll get 2-3 runs.
