Diamondbacks Must Find A Way To Get On A Roll In Nation’s Capital This Week

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/24/2013 7:28:12 PM

The Arizona Diamondbacks are among the surprise National League teams this online sports betting season, building the best record in the West division with a strong mix of pitching and offense. However, the Diamondbacks have been a .500 team over the couple of weeks, failing to capitalize on the chance to extend their lead over the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies. Arizona will try to get on a roll this week in the nation’s capital, where they will clash with a Washington Nationals’ team that is fading fast in the NL East.

The Nationals still have one of the better pitching staffs in the majors, but their offense has been far too inconsistent and it has really hurt their chances in the NL East. Washington ranks near the bottom of the majors in batting average and runs scored, and must find a way to generate more runs when it has runners in scoring position. Trevor Cahill has lost three of his last four starts and has been dealing with a hip injury, so he may be vulnerable heading in to this sports betting match up. Gio Gonzalez is winless in his last four starts despite allowing two runs or fewer in each of them, so if he finally gets some run support he could be in line for the victory.

It won’t get much easier for Arizona on Wednesday, as Jordan Zimmermann has been the best Nationals’ pitcher all season and is 10-3 with a 2.26 ERA. Washington has won each of its last four games with Zimmermann on the mound, and he has pitched at least seven scoreless innings in three of those wins. By contrast, Miley has allowed at least three runs in three of his last four starts, and could be vulnerable if Zimmermann shuts down his run support. The Diamondbacks have not looked very good over the past couple of weeks, and another couple of tough pitching match ups won’t help.

Ironically, the pitcher that was expected to lead the way for Washington this season is probably the one that Arizona is looking the most forward to going up against, as Stephen Strasburg gets the start for the Nationals in the series finale. Strasburg struggled early on after sitting out late last season as a precaution following Tommy John surgery, but he has not been able to get back to .500 even thought he is playing much better of late. Strasburg has allowed one run or fewer in seven-straight starts, but he is just 3-2 over that span and 4-6 overall. That could be a sign of trouble with Patrick Corbin looking to improve to 10-0 for a Diamondbacks’ team looking to avoid a three-game series sweep. Corbin has posted a 2.19 ERA in 15 starts this online betting season, and Arizona has won an incredible 14 of  15 games he has started.
