The Diamondbacks offense finally got back on track as they look to make it two straight when they take on the Yankees Tuesday night.
Both teams will send out their top pitcher with Michael Pineda opposing Zack Greinke here in this one.
The Yankees will have to dig deep here if they hope to make it 4 straight series wins.
New York saw their offense go cold in Game 1 and their pitching completely lose it in the 5th, as they were routed in the series opener. Inconsistent play has been the problem for the Yankees this season, as they simply cannot afford that after the kind of start they had.
The road has been a big problem for New York as well. With the loss Monday, they are now just 4-11 SU away from Yankee Stadium. They have averaged just 2.71 runs per road game.
New York will send out Michael Pineda, who must turn things around. He is just 1-4 on the season with a 6.28 ERA. Pineda’s lone win came on 4/6 and he has since lost 4 of 6 starts with the other two being ND. He allowed 6 runs last time out in 5.2 innings of work in a loss to KC.
The Diamondbacks took out some major frustrations on Monday night.
Arizona was swept away in a 4 game set against the Giants, as their offense had no answer for the Giants pitching. On Monday, the Diamondbacks erupted for 12 runs and score runs in 6 out of 8 innings.
With the win, they are now 6-16 at Chase Field. That certainly has to improve, especially with the amount of money they spent during free agency this past offseason.
The Diamondbacks will send out the main piece of that money spending spree in Zack Greinke. The RH has a 5.26 ERA and is 3-3 on the season. He has improved after a rough start, but the ERA is still a major concern for the Diamondbacks. Greinke lost his last start as he allowed 4 runs on 8 hits in 6.0 innings of work to the Giants.

Free N.Y. Yankees vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Greinke is a major key to the Diamondbacks success.
He was signed to big money to be this teams ace and while he has improved, he still can’t justify a 5 plus ERA. Look for him to really buckle down here in this one, especially given the Yankees offensive struggles.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick:Arizona ML
Greinke will get a chance at an offense that averages under 3 runs per road game. Expect him to turn in a quality start and then some in a game where the Diamondbacks win and make it 2 straight.
