Velasquez was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and picked up his eighth win of the season in a 5-1 victory over the Miami Marlins.
He pitched 6.1 shutout-innings giving up just two hits while he struck out seven and walked one.
In 113.2 innings of work this season, Velasquez owns a solid strikeout (10.21 K/9) to walk rate (3.40 BB/9), while he has been okay limiting the long ball (1.03 HR/9) but he could do better stranding base runners (72.0% LOB%).
The end-result is a solid 3.80 ERA and an even better 3.58 FIP.
Philadelphia continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won five of their last six contests in the past week.
During that span their lineup is slashing .244/.340/.385 to go with 14 extra-base hits and 27 RBI.
Corbin was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start while picking up his eighth win of the season in a 6-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants.
He went six innings giving up seven hits and three earned runs while he struck out eight and walked none.
In 141.1 innings of work this season, the lefty owns an elite strikeout (11.08 K/9) to walk rate (2.36 BB/9), while he has been solid limiting the long ball (0.70 HR/9), but he could work on stranding base runners (73.4% LOB%).
The end-result is a solid 3.31 ERA and an even better 2.55 FIP meaning his defense has hurt his ERA at times this season.
Arizona continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won four of their last six contests in the past week.
During that span their lineup is slashing .274/.354/.465 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 26 RBI.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction: Philadelphia pulls off upset on the road
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8 Total Runs & Phillies +138
Velasquez has been proving why he was drafted in the second round as he is reaching his ceiling.
His problems usually stemmed from control, but with that currently under wraps, his ability to produce strikeouts is separating him from the pack.
He owns a 2.54 ERA on the road to go with a slash line of .225/.305/.319. In the month of July he posted a solid 0.95 ERA and has started August with a 0.00 ERA.
Corbin has been solid as well posting a 3.68 ERA in July, while he’ll be coming off of a quality start.
Philadelphia hasn’t hit as well against lefties while Arizona hasn’t hit as well against righties.
I expect the under to hit, while I’ll sprinkle a little on Philadelphia to get the upset.
