Game Preview


Before the All-Star break, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Pittsburgh Pirates play each other. Both clubs are moving in different paths. The Pirates currently sit in the 4th spot in the NL Central with a 40-47 overall record after suffering back-to-back defeats. Despite having a 50-38 record overall and holding the top spot in the NL West, the Diamondbacks are hoping to turn things around following 4 straight defeats.


After losing to New York in a sweep, Arizona improved to 50-38. After being held scoreless in match 3, the Diamondbacks will try to make things right before the All-Star break. The Arizona lineup is batting .273 with a.332 on-base percentage and scoring 4.78 runs per contest. The bullpen has a 1.36 WHIP and a 4.84 ERA. The Diamondbacks are looking for good news about Corbin Carroll’s early exit from yesterday evening’s match since an injury to the All-Star rookie could prove inopportune at this point. Ketel Marte tops the squad in hits with 87 and has splits. He has registered a hit in 7 of the previous 10 contests.


Rich Hill, who is scheduled to start the following match, has had a difficult season, giving up 54 runs in 94 innings pitched. Additionally, opponents are making contact and blasting the ball off of Hill to effortlessly score runs with a .281 anticipated opponent batting average, a .484 projected opponent slugging percentage, and a 5.51 predicted ERA.



After losing 3 of 4 against Los Angeles, Pittsburgh enters with a record of 40–47. The Pirates escaped getting swept in Los Angeles, but they have lost 5 of their first 6 games to begin a vital month. This coming weekend, they will face a challenging task as Zac Gallen and Merrill Kelly are expected to play for Arizona. The Pittsburgh lineup is batting .243 with a .321 on-base percentage and scoring 4.11 runs per contest. The bullpen has a 1.39 WHIP and a 4.34 ERA. Bryan Reynolds, who currently leads the Pirates in batting (.269), hits (75), and RBIs (42) with 42, homered in the Pirates’ Game 3 defeat to the Dodgers.


The next contest will be started by Zac Gallen, who is pitching exceptionally well this season, surrendering just 44 runs in 111.1 innings pitched and striking out 120 batters. Additionally, opponents are finding it difficult to reach base versus Gallen with a .273 weighted opponent on-base average, a 5.1 walk rate, and a 3.80 projected ERA, failing to score runs as a consequence.
