The Arizona Diamondbacks clash with the Los Angeles Dodgers in a four-game series with National League West implications. The Diamondbacks have a one-game lead in the division over the Dodgers, who have won five straight.

Ray is winless since June 27

Robbie Ray (3-2, 4.73 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) allowed one earned run on five hits (one home run). He had four walks with seven strikeouts over five innings to get a no-decision in a 4-3 loss against the Mariners last Saturday.

Ray just couldn’t find the strike zone. Throwing only 56 of his 104 pitches for strikes was a problem. He has issued at least four walks in four of his last five starts. The left-hander is winless in his last 10 starts and he’s posted a 4.34 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP in his last seven appearances. 

The Diamondbacks have scored 590 runs (17th in the majors). They are putting up 4.44 runs per game (17th), hitting .239 (27th) with 145 home runs (19th).

Arizona ranks 3rd with a 3.54 ERA, 5th with a 1.21 WHIP and 7th with 1179 strikeouts.

Their bullpen ranks 3rd with a 3.12 ERA.

Paul Goldschmidt leads the Diamondbacks with 30 home runs, 76 RBI, a .395 OBP and 144 hits.

David Peralta has 25 home runs, 71 RBI and a team-best .303 batting average.

Hill dominates the Padres

Rich Hill (6-4, 3.50 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) threw six scoreless innings in Friday’s 11-1 win against the Padres. He surrendered just two hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. Hill is pitching well as of late, going 2-0 with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP in his last five starts.

The Dodgers have scored 634 runs (7th in the majors). They are putting up 4.77 runs per game (6th), hitting .245 (17th) with 186 home runs (2nd).

Los Angeles ranks 2nd with a 3.44 ERA, 2nd with a 1.17 WHIP and 3rd with 1276 strikeouts.

Their bullpen ranks 13th with a 3.92 ERA. Max Muncy leads the Dodgers with 30 home runs.

Yasmani Grandal has 22 home runs and 60 RBI and Cody Bellinger has 21 home runs, 63 RBI and a team-best 123 hits.
