Los Angeles Dodgers vs Arizona Diamondbacks Probable Pitchers

Despite his lone loss on the season, Montgomery's 7 strikeouts and 13 full innings pitched suggest he's capable of shutting down the Dodgers' potent offense.

Los Angeles Dodgers Analysis

As the Los Angeles Dodgers prepare to face off against the Arizona Diamondbacks, they'll be looking to capitalize on their impressive team statistics. With a league-leading 162 runs scored and 295 hits, the Dodgers' offense is firing on all cylinders. Mookie Betts' .377 batting average and 23 RBIs set the tone for a potent lineup that's difficult to silence. Meanwhile, the team's impressive on-base percentage of .275 and 249 runners left on base suggest that they'll continue to create scoring opportunities. If probable starter Landon Knack can contain the Diamondbacks' offense, the Dodgers' bats should be able to do the rest, making them a formidable opponent in this upcoming matchup.

Arizona Diamondbacks Analysis

As the Arizona Diamondbacks gear up to face the Los Angeles Dodgers, they'll be relying on their strong offense to carry them through. Led by Ketel Marte's impressive .311 batting average and five home runs, the Diamondbacks boast a potent lineup that has scored 158 runs, good for second-best in the league. Meanwhile, Lourdes Gurriel Jr.'s 22 RBIs will look to provide a spark in the heart of the order. However, the team's Achilles' heel lies in their tendency to strike out, ranking 24th in the league with 222 strikeouts. If they can limit their whiffs, the Diamondbacks have the firepower to hang with the Dodgers' potent offense. Facing Jordan Montgomery on the mound, the Diamondbacks will need to capitalize on their opportunities to come out on top in this crucial matchup.
