The Arizona Diamondbacks have struggled this year, but they will look to test themselves against a pretty tough opponent this Saturday when they go head to head with the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
The Diamondbacks have split their last 4 games going 2-2, but given the way they have played all year that is not all that bad and shows that they are still showing up to play each and every day despite being far out of the playoff picture.
Their last game was the first game of this series where they were able to beat this Phillies team in an absolute thriller by a score of 8-7 in what was a major upset based on the odds.
The D-backs offense has been at least half-way decent for most of the season ranking in 21st with 544 runs scored with Eduardo Escobar being the main driving force behind those statistics, as he has been having a great season and has been mighty consistent right through the season.
Humberto Mehia was okay during his first start against the Pirates on August 24th giving up 6 hits, but only allowing 2 runs during his 5 innings of work, but it really is tough to project him to have much success here against the Phillies.
Despite being under .500 the Phillies are right in the mix in terms of winning their division, but they have not been playing very well lately losing their last 3 games in a row and falling 5.5 games back of the Braves in the NL East.
This Philadelphia Phillies offense on paper is actually quite strong, but for some reason they just have not been able to put up the numbers, as they are ranked just below average as a unit in 16th with just 565 runs scored.
Kyle Gibson will give the Phillies a big boost on the hill here, as he is coming off of one amazing start against the San Diego Padres where he only allowed 1 run over 8 full innings of work and he should be able to have plenty of success here against this Diamondbacks batting lineup.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
This actually does not seem like a ton of juice given the pitching matchup and I can certainly see the Phillies getting the job done here in a big way and covering this on the runline for us. The Phillies should come into this game in desperation mode and with a quality starter like Gibson, and a guy like Bryce Harper who has been on fire, they should be covering this 1.5 run spread here on Saturday.
