Escobar hits game-winning homer
Eduardo Escobar broke a 3-3 tie with a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the ninth last night to send Arizona to a 4-3 home win over the Dodgers. Escobar finished 1-for-1 with the home run plus a walk off the bench. David Peralta was 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and two RBIs off the bench. A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 and scored a run. Chris Owings finished 1-for-3 with a double and a walk. Brad Boxberger recorded the win in relief as he gave up one earned run on two hits in an inning of work.
Bellinger homers in loss
Justin Turner finished 1-for-4 plus a walk in last night's loss at the Diamondbacks. Cody Bellinger ended the game 2-for-4 with a solo home run. Yasmani Grandal went a perfect 3-for-3 with a triple. Enrique Hernandez was 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI. Kenta Maeda took the loss in relief as he gave up the home run to Escobar with the only batter he faced.
MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 8-1 in their last nine games following a loss. Los Angeles is 10-3 in its last 13 games overall.
The D-backs are 2-8 in their last 10 home games. Arizona is 8-20 in its last 28 games overall.
Greinke will give the Diamondbacks a fighting chance here, but Los Angeles has a division title its playing for and is the team that is properly motivated. Arizona played a bit of spoiler last night, but I can't see it happening two nights in a row.
