Diamondbacks vs Dodgers predictions

As the Arizona Diamondbacks take on the Los Angeles Dodgers, I'm expecting big things from Corbin Carroll, who's been on a tear lately. I predict he'll go 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored, continuing his impressive rookie season. Ketel Marte, who's been the team's most consistent hitter, should also have a solid game, going 2-for-4 with an RBI. And look for Jake McCarthy to make an impact off the bench, possibly driving in a run with a pinch-hit single.

On the Dodgers' side, Mookie Betts is always a threat, and I expect him to go 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. Freddie Freeman should also have a strong game, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. And don't sleep on Teoscar Hernandez, who's been hot lately - I predict he'll go 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. With the Dodgers' deep lineup, it's hard to count out anyone from having a big game.

Given the Dodgers' strong pitching and deep lineup, I'm predicting a Dodgers win in this one. Yoshinobu Yamamoto should have a solid outing, limiting the Diamondbacks to just two runs over six innings. Meanwhile, the Dodgers' bats should be able to get to Joe Mantiply and the Diamondbacks' bullpen, ultimately leading to a 5-2 Dodgers victory.
