Arizona lost by a score of 7-4 at Philadelphia Tuesday night to drop to 35-33 overall and 21-17 on the road. Ketel Marte had a big night in the loss as he was 3-for-5 with a solo home run. Carson Kelly finished 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two RBIs. Nick Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a walk plus a run scored. Jon Duplantier took the loss as he surrendered four earned runs on seven hits over four innings, striking one and walking one. Merrill Kelly gets the start today for the Diamondbacks as he enters with a 6-6 record, 4.12 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 58 strikeouts over 74 1/3 innings.
Kingery lifts Phillies to win
Scott Kingery hit a three-run home run during a four-run bottom of the second inning as host Philadelphia earned a 7-4 victory over Arizona. Kingery ended the contest 1-for-3 with the home run and a walk plus the three RBIs. Rhys Hoskins finished 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI. J.T. Realmuto was 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Jay Bruce finished 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI.

MLB Betting Trends
The D-Backs are 4-1 in their last five road games. Arizona is 6-2 in its last eight Wednesday games.
The Phillies are 8-3 in their last 11 home games. Philadelphia is 6-1 in the last seven Eflin home starts.
Philadelphia bounced back nicely from a loss in the series opener to control the action last night en route to a win. Both pitchers in today's game have been pitching well lately, but I do trust Eflin at home more. Kelly is what he is and after two straight fantastic starts, I think he crashes down to earth somewhat today. Go with the favorites.
