Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have surpassed many expectations as they hold a four-game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West. The Dodgers were expected to compete this year, but the team has done it without the services of ace Clayton Kershaw for half of the season.
Even after Kershaw hit the DL with back problems in June, the Dodgers kept on trucking.
The pitching has been the unit that’s held the team together, thanks to great performances from guys like Kenta Maeda, Julio Urias and company.
The youngster Jose De Leon will take the mound for the Dodgers against pitching punching bag Robbie Ray. De Leon has only made two starts this season but has been surprisingly efficient and has a K/BB ratio of 6/1.
The Diamondbacks were snake bitten after spending boatloads of cash to get starting pitchers Zach Grienke and Shelby Miller in the offseason. Both have failed to live up to expectations and Arizona’s pitching staff has been an absolute mess. Arizona ranks dead last in runs allowed at 5.7 per game, as well as ERA and WHIP.
Even with the bats of Welington Castillo and Paul Goldschmidt, the Diamondbacks pitching has kept the club from staying competitive this year. Robbie Ray has been one of those struggling starters, and he’ll take the mound to counter the Dodgers in this one.
Ray comes in with an 8-13 record and has allowed 12 earned runs over his last three starts. He did pitch a gem in his previous start against the Dodgers on Sept. 7, however, allowing three earned runs and striking out 12 batters in six innings.
