A matchup that would have been anticipated to be a big one prior to the season, is just important for the Dodgers as they head into Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks on Friday night.
Los Angeles sits in 2nd place in the NL West, while Arizona has had zero luck here in 2016, as they sit in last place in the division.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers looked to be a team focusing solely on the Wild Card in the 2nd half of the season, but their strong finish to the first half has put them back within striking distance in the division.
Los Angels finished the first half winning their final 3 games and going 18-8 in a 26 game span, as they have climbed to within 6.5 games of front running San Francisco.
1B Adrian Gonzalez has been a big part of that spark to the Dodgers, as he is really providing a giant bat for this team. Gonzalez has gone 11 for 20 with 4 doubles and a home run in his last 5 games.
Los Angeles will send out Bud Norris, who is making a giant start here.
Norris was acquired when Clayton Kershaw went on the DL and while he clearly isn’t expected to perform at an even close level, giving the Dodgers a chance to win every start is important.
He’s done that thus far, going 1-0 with an ERA of 2.45 in a pair of starts with the Dodgers.
The Diamondbacks have a lot of thinking to do here at the deadline, along with their personnel as the season goes on.
Arizona put a lot of money into this team, expecting to compete at a high level in the NL West, but that hasn’t been the case.
The Diamondbacks struggled to close out the first half, losing 4 straight and 12 of their last 14. It’s been the pitching that has been the biggest concern for this Arizona team, but that doesn’t give the offense any sort of free pass.
Trying to get this staff going, Arizona sends out LH Patrick Corbin, who is a mere 4-7 on the season with a near 5 ERA.
Corbin hasn’t made it through 5.0 innings in 2 of his last 3 starts and has given up 5 runs in all 3 outings.
The LH has struggled with his command and secondary pitches, which has led to high pitch counts thanks to free passes early on.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Arizona just hasn’t been able to click or getting any sort of confidence this season.
Given the significance of Norris replacing Kershaw for the time being, a lot of pressure is on the arm of Norris to give the Dodgers quality outings.
