On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks finish their brief two-game series in Arizona. Over the course of this season, the two clubs have traded the lead in the NL West Division, with the Dodgers now in first position. On the mound for the Wednesday night game, right-handers Bobby Miller of the Dodgers and Merrill Kelly of the Diamondbacks will square off.
The Los Angeles Dodgers tried to improve their major league squad before the trade deadline. The club signed pitcher Lance Lynn, reliever Joe Kelly, infielders Amed Rosario and Kike Hernandez, and a starter, Rosario.
So far, the trades have paid off for the Dodgers, as Rosario and Hernandez have bolstered the team’s infield, Lynn has added seasoned experience to the rotation, and Kelly has given the team another potent relief option. The Dodgers are currently one of the favorites to win the World Series, as they lead the NL West division.
In the last game of the series on Wednesday, the Dodgers will go with hard-throwing right-hander Bobby Miller. Miller has a 6-2 record and four quality starts in 12 appearances this year. He has a 4.26 ERA and has given up 61 hits in 63.1 innings.
Prior to the All-Star break, the Arizona Diamondbacks were the only team in the National League West Division. The Los Angeles Dodgers eventually overtook them. The D-Backs enter this series with a 5-17 record since the All-Star break. They’ve dropped to third place in the division, threatening their chances of making the playoffs.
The Diamondbacks will send right-hander Merrill Kelly to the mound. Kelly has a remarkable 12 quality starts for the season, contributing to his 9-5 record in 19 starts. He has a 3.25 ERA and has only given up 88 hits over 112 innings. In two starts this season versus the Dodgers, he is 0-1 with an ERA of 1.93.
