Dodgers Look to Expand NL West Lead

National League West division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers, are set to wrap up their three game series on Thursday. Chavez Ravine, and Dodger Stadium, will host the game scheduled to start at 10:10 EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Dodgers as -155-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total opened at 7.5. The line has held pretty steady all day.

The Los Angeles Dodgers did not allow a run in the past two games against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Left-handers Clayton Kershaw and Alex Wood each threw seven shutout innings in back to back games. The first-place Dodgers beat the second-place Diamondbacks 4-3 on Tuesday and 1-0 on Wednesday. This extended their lead over Arizona to 4 1/2 games in the National League West. Another left-hander will pitch tonight for the Dodgers.

Tonights Starters Been Pitching Well

Rich Hill is on the “hill” for Los Angeles. The Dodgers left-hander has a 4.00 ERA to go along with a 5-4 record this season. Hill last pitched on Saturday against the San Diego Padres. He went seven innings and recording a career-best 11 strikeouts. He allowed only four hits in an 8-0 victory.

Left hander Robbie Ray will take the mound for the Diamondbacks to start this game. Ray is 8-4 this season with a 3.06 ERA. Ray has been one of the top strikeout pitchers in the NL this season. He has 128 strikeouts and is tied for third in the NL with Washington’s Stephen Strasburg. That puts them behind Max Scherzer of the Nationals (163) and Kershaw (146).

Ray has been at his best since mid-May. He has posted a 6-1 mark with a 1.81 ERA in his past eight starts. Opponents are only hitting .173 off him in that time-frame. He has been just as good on the road. Ray owns a 4-1 mark and a 1.32 ERA.
