Diamondbacks vs Phillies Prediction & Pick

The Diamondbacks hope to get a solid performance from Ryne Nelson tonight. The 25-year-old hurler has only been credited with the victory once in his previous nine starts, tallying a 5.48 ERA along the way. Having said that, Nelson only allowed one hit without a run while striking out six batters over 5 1/3 innings in his latest start.

Meanwhile, the Phillies hope that starting pitcher Matt Strahm keeps the ball in the park. Strahm is 4-3 with a 2.73 ERA through 11 games (six starts), averaging a whopping 12.8 strikeouts per nine innings. Nevertheless, tonight's tilt marks his first start in over three weeks.

Although the Diamondbacks are riding high from last night's win, I see the Phillies evening the series Tuesday. The pitching advantage is on the home club's side, especially considering that Arizona has a losing record (6-7) against left-handed pitchers this season.

It'll be a close one, but the Phillies have what it takes to end the Diamondbacks' winning streak.

Final Score Prediction: Phillies: 5 | Diamondbacks: 4

Diamondbacks vs Phillies Best Bet

For this game's best bet, I'm taking Lourdes Gurriel Jr. to record an RBI at +140 odds. The talented outfielder has found a ton of success away from home, recording 14 hits, four home runs, and eight RBIs while batting .359 in his last 10 road games.

After recording a pair of RBIs last night while getting a hit in all four of his at-bats, it'd be far from surprising if Gurriel drives in another run tonight.

Bet: Lourdes Gurriel Jr. to Record 1+ RBI (+140)
