The Arizona Diamondbacks will take on the Cleveland Guardians in a three-game series at Progressive Field, continuing their 6-game road trip. The Diamondbacks are in a very tough position as they are battling the Colorado Rockies for last place in the National League West division. Cleveland is on the opposite side, aiming for the American League Central division throne and remains just 1 game behind the leaders, the Minnesota Twins.
Over the weekend, the Diamondbacks’ offense was contained by Atlanta’s pitching, only being able to score two runs in their first two games, which were back-to-back losses. On Sunday, in the series finale, the Diamondbacks’ lineup continued their struggles as they were held scoreless and had just four hits in a 1-0 walk-off loss. This upcoming series is going to be an important one for them if they want to have any chance at coming back into the season.
For the Cleveland Guardians it’s only good news as they are still one of the biggest surprises in the MLB this season. As they are currently in the playoff race, it will be interesting to see if Cleveland gets active in the trade market. The team has overachieved with a young and inexperienced lineup but could certainly use another veteran bat to go along with MVP-candidate Jose Ramirez.
The Guardians will kick things off with Cal Quantrill, who is making his 20th start of the season. He is holding a 7-5 record with a 3.97 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 111 innings pitched while striking out 71. In July, Quantrill went 3-1 thus and the Guardians have won each of his last four starts.
Zach Davies is going to be starting for the Arizona Diamondbacks today, who is currently holding a 2-4 record. Throughout 15 starts, Davies has a 3.94 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 80 innings pitched while striking out 62. He recently spent just over a month on the injured list due to right shoulder inflammation.
