Apparently Philly just needed a little time away…from Citizens Bank Park ….to get back in their groove. The Phillies bounced back from losing 2 of 3 at home to the White Sox over the weekend to capture the series opener in Arizona 7-3.
2 hits from Bryce Harper on Monday was a welcomed site as both he and Rhys Hoskins had been struggling over the past week. Philadelphia scratched out 13 hits in winning the series opener but perhaps more importantly scratched out a run in each of the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings to stretch the Arizona bullpen.
Philadelphia’s offense showed up Monday but so did starter Vince Velasquez. The right-hander pitched into the 7th for the 1st time in his last 7 starts which gives hope to Jake Arrieta for Tuesday. Arrieta has been a warrior battling through bone spurs in his throwing elbow likely limiting him to 6 IP or less in this one. Even so, the right-hander has allowed 1 ER or less in 3 of his last 4 starts.
The Diamondbacks had put up some good offense in winning Saturday’s game vs. the Nationals 18-7 and following that up with a 7-5 victory on Sunday. Arizona still managed 9 hits in Monday’s loss but were only able to plate 3 runs.
Arizona also managed 3 errors on Monday which doesn’t do any favors to a struggling pitching staff. The Diamondbacks have now allowed at least 5 runs in 6 of the last 8 games making Tuesday’s O/U of 9.5 look like a tempting ‘over’ play.
Mike Leake will try to do his part to limit the scoring however as Arizona’s Tuesday night starter. The right-hander looks to be invigorated after coming over from the Mariners minutes before the trade deadline. Leake has two 0ER outings over his last 5 starts, but has also allowed at least 4ER in 3 of 7.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Phillies are 5-1 last 6 road games
- Phillies are 5-2 in Arrieta’s last 7 starts
- Under is 5-0 in Phillies last 5 road games
- Diamondbacks are 2-5 last 7 vs. RH starter
- Diamondbacks are 2-10 last 12 Tuesday games
- Phillies are 1-5 last 6 in Arizona
Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
When Leake has been on, he’s been great lately with a 9.0 IP shutout and 7.2 IP of 0ER ball in among five starts in July.The right-hander should be amped up in his Arizona debut and the big guns for the Phillies are struggling right now.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Diamondbacks -122
Arrieta loses velocity in the 4th or 5th inning so Arizona needs to strike then.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Diamondbacks 5 – Phillies 4
