Draftkings MLB Picks Arizona Diamondbacks vs Philadelphia Phillies
Following a night of record breaking numbers, the Arizona Diamondbacks and Philadelphia Phillies will face off for round two. Monday night, the two clubs combined for 13, yes I said 13 HRs in a 13-8 D-Backs victory over the Phillies. The Diamondbacks were able to hit a franchise record 8 while Philly followed with 5 of their own.
Game 2 of a 3 will take place Tuesday night in Philly. The Phillies are 37-29 and in first place of the NL East. Across the diamond the Diamondbacks are 35-32 and in third in the NL West.
As for the gentlemen responsibly for slowing down the HR borage, the D-Backs will rely on Jon Duplantier (1-0, 3.27 ERA) in his third MLB start. The Phillies are going the veteran route, as they will send out Jake Arrieta (5-5, 4.29 ERA).
Starting pitcher Jon Duplantier has lasted 5 innings in each of his three starts. The 24-year-old was the D-Backs No. 2 ranked prospect. Arizona is ranked No. 4 in the MLB in team batting, as they average 5.3 runs per game and 9.2 hits. Along with outstanding bats this season they rank No. 9 in the league in team pitching.
The Philadelphia Phillies:
The Phillies rank amongst the middle of the pack in the league in both batting (15th) and pitching (13th), but have continued to roll and found ways to win. Everybody is familiar with the Bryce Harper deal, but the Phillies have shown even more signs of their commitment to winning. Just last week they were able to acquire All-Star OF Jay Bruce from Seattle. The Phillies, despite questionable stats, are no team to take lightly as they surge into the All-Star Break in less than a month.

MLB Picks Philadelphia Phillies vs Arizona Diamondbacks
The Phillies are a team that has responded well to defeat all season long. Following a record breaking Diamondbacks performance last night, I see Philly taking care of business and giving a young pitcher all he can handle.
