Game Preview


In a matchup of division leaders, the Arizona Diamondbacks will try to get 2 consecutive wins after defeating the top club in MLB, the Tampa Bay Rays, on Tuesday. The D-Backs aren’t significantly behind the Rays, who have had among the top lineups in MLB all season, but they’ll require stronger performance from Zach Davies if they want to win two games in a row. This game will take place on Wednesday June 28th at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.


After ending the 6th inning with a 94 mph fastball over Christian Bethancourt, Zac Gallen let out an uncommon cheer.

Pitching can occasionally seem simple for the Diamondbacks’ ace, especially at Chase Field, but Tuesday’s appearance was everything from simple.
