Diamondbacks rally in ninth

He went 3-for-5 with the homer, a double and three runs. David Peralta was 3-for-5 with a run. Steven Souza Jr. was 0-for-2, but walked twice and scored a run. Nick Ahmed finished 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and three RBIs. Brad Boxberger suffered the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on one hit with one strikeout and one walk in two-thirds of an inning.

MLB Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Braves are 5-15 in their last 20 Friday games. Atlanta is 6-2 in its last eight road games.

Arizona

The over is 12-3 in Corbin's last 15 Friday starts. The over is 10-1-1 in the last 12 meetings.

Prediction:

While games between these two squads have titled toward the over, Chase Field has been more pitcher-friendly this season and we have two solid pitchers on the mound tonight. Things tend to even out over time and with the over hitting 10 of the last 12 meetings, it's time for a nice and tidy low-scoring affair.
