With playoff hopes on their minds, the Dodgers look to leave the desert with another important victory over the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Despite an insurmountable amount of injuries, including the loss of ace Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers are playing great baseball and look to close the gap with the Giants as the second half gets underway.
The Dodgers have struggled in nearly every offensive category, but the pitching has been outstanding.
The team made a move for Bud Norris to bolster the staff, and they continue to battle through injury after injury while racking up wins.
Kenta Maeda has been a big reason why L.A.’s pitching has been outstanding, and he’ll look to keep that going against the Diamondbacks.
Maeda is only 8-6 but has an impressive sub-3.00 ERA to go along with a 1.09 WHIP.
He was marvelous in his previous start where he allowed just one run while striking out 13 against the San Diego Padres.
Arizona has been snake-bitten by both Zach Grienke and Shelby Miller, their two big free agent signings in the offseason.
The Diamondbacks find themselves 15 games under .500, due in large part because of their pitching staff. Arizona ranks 27th in runs allowed, 28th in hits allowed and 29th in WHIP.
Despite their top-10 offense led by Welington Castillo and Paul Goldschmidt, the pitching has hindered this team from making a run at the postseason.
Robbie Ray will try to best the mighty Maeda in this one, but it won’t be easy. Ray comes in with a 4-8 record and has allowed at least four runs in five of his last 10 starts.
He’s been especially terrible at home with a 5.92 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP.

This is a high number to lay on a road team, but Maeda has proven to be one of the best road pitchers in the big leagues.
