Greinke guides D-backs to win

Arizona won for a second straight day at Atlanta on Saturday, prevailing 3-0 behind 7 2/3 shutout innings from Zack Greinke. He gave up four hits, struck out seven and did not walk a batter. David Peralta was 1-for-4 with a walk at the top of the lineup. A.J. Pollock went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk. Ketel Marte was 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Jeff Mathis finished 2-for-4 with a double. 

Swanson has two-hit day 

The only Braves batter with multiple hits was shortstop Dansby Swanson, who went 2-for-4. Tyler Flowers added a double in four at-bats. Sean Newcomb suffered the loss as he gave up three earned runs on four hits with two strikeouts and three walks over 5 2/3 innings. 

Patrick Corbin (6-3, 3.09 ERA) will start today for the D-backs, while the Braves turn to Julio Teheran (6-6, 4.26). 

MLB Betting Trends

Arizona

The under iw 6-1-1 in the last eight Diamondbacks road games. Arizona is 14-4 in its last 18 road games.

Atlanta

The Braves are 7-2 in their last nine Sunday games. Atlanta is 2-8 in its last 10 games overall.

Prediction: 

Arizona has used solid pitching the last two days and with Corbin on the mound, I'd expect it to continue. Both pitchers have been shelled at various times this season, but Corbin throws gems more often. I'm going to ride the Diamondbacks wave.
