The Arizona Diamondbacks have remained very competitive lately and they will look to pull off another upset against the Philadelphia Phillies this Sunday at Citizens Bank Park.
The D-Backs have been decent recently, but they have lost their last 2 games against this Philly team, so they will be looking to avoid losing the series here sending Madison Bumgarner to the hill who has been great recently. This batting lineup was shut down by Kyle Gibson in their last outing, but they should be able to have some more success with the bat here up against Ranger Suarez.
The offense ranks in 22nd this year with 550 runs and those runs have been generated from a bunch of sources with no real big time bat in the lineup, but a guy like Dylan Varsho has helped out in a big way, as he has been a home run machine as of late and he really does look to be one to look out for in the future.
It was not the most amazing start last time out for Bumgarner, but he still has only allowed 7 runs in his last 3 outings and it is good to see him finding some success here recently. This start in Philadelphia does represent some challenges, though, as the Phillies do have a decent batting lineup who will challenge Bumgarner here.
Philadelphia are only 4-4 in their last 8 and are only 1 game over .500, so it is a bit of a surprise to see them right there in the mix of winning this division, but if they can put together a solid September they could very well win the NL East.
If this team is going to get hot in September it will likely be off the back of their bating lineup who has some serious talent with guys like Bryce Harper looking very good in recent times.
Ranger Suarez is the projected starter here and although he has given up plenty of hits recently, he has avoided giving up runs so it will be interesting to see how he fairs in this game coming in here with an awfully good 1.46 ERA.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Arizona gets a boost with Madison Bumgarner here, but I do not think it will be enough and we are getting an awfully good price on the home team here on the runline. Ranger Suarez has also been able to prevent runs despite giving up hits, so I think he can hold the D-Backs down through about 5 innings which should put the Phillies in a good spot to cover this spread.
