The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to further damage the Phillies playoff hopes this Friday, as the two teams meet up at Citizens Bank Park.
The Diamondbacks are only 2-4 in their last 6 games, and for the Diamondbacks in 2021, that is not all that bad except for the fact that the teams they have played over those 6 games were the Pirates and the Rockies.
The D-Backs are now 40 games back of the San Francisco Giants and with their eyes firmly on the future they only have pride to play for at this point. They do remain scrappy, though, as proven by their series win over the Padres earlier this month, so the Phillies cannot underestimate them in this spot.
Taylor Widener is the projected starter here and he really should be able to put the Diamondbacks in a place to win, as he comes in here with a 4.34 ERA and he has only allowed 4 earned runs over his last 3 outings.
Philadelphia has not done themselves much of a service over the last 9 games only picking up 2 wins over that span and they really are lucky to only be 5 games behind the Atlanta Braves at this point.
Although things have not been going the Phillies way lately, it is nice to see Bryce Harper coming alive in the second half of the season as he now has 24 home runs and an incredible OBP of .412.
The pitching staff has been decent all year long with their pitching statistics ranking right about league average with their starting lineup being a little over average with 46 quality starts delivered which ranks them 11th in the league.
Aaron Nola will look to make it 47 quality starts this Friday, as he heads to the hill in an effort to shut down the Arizona Diamondbacks who can hit the ball well on their day with some decent young talent.
Nola has been decent all year long with an ERA around 4, but he is coming off of one incredible performance against the San Diego Padres going 8.2 innings and only allowing 2 hits and 2 earned runs.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
I do think Aaron Nola is a better pitcher then his overall statistics show this year and he proved that in his last start and although he probably won’t do something similar here I can still see him going 6 to 7 strong innings in this game.
I also think this Phillies batting lineup can get going again here, as I feel they just have too much talent to be held down for too long and it is not like Widener has been all that great this year either.
