Pitching matchup

Matt Strahm (4-3, 3.61 ERA) vs Tommy Henry (3-1, 4.37 ERA)

The Phillies are finally beginning to click from a pitching perspective and a series win over the Dodgers was a prime example of that. They’ve given up an average of 7 runs per game over their last 3 (down from their season-long average of 8) and this should instill some confidence in Matt Strahm, who has struggled over his last 3 games but will be headlining what is likely to be a bullpen day for the Phils.

Strahm started the season really strong but his role seemed to be forever changing. He’ll open for the Phillies on Monday in hopes of recovering from a shaky inning against the Dodgers where he allowed 3 runs.

Across from Strahm will be Tommy Henry. The 25-year-old has been fairly impressive this season but has given up his fair share of homers, including a pair in his most recent start against the Nationals. He’s given up 2 home runs in 3 of his 9 appearances this year and with the Phils offense finding its footing once more, this could ring the alarm bells for the DBacks.

Diamondbacks vs Phillies Betting preview

The Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 games having really seem to have built some confidence against lesser opponents. This gave them an edge against the Dodgers and they now face a Diamondbacks team that boasts a commanding 40-25 record and sits atop the NL West. It’s a tough test for the Phils but a necessary grading scale.

Arizona has the 5th-best offense in all of Baseball and rank 3rd in strikeouts per game. They also rank 2nd in Sac Flies per game, which could be a concern if some pesky errors come back to haunt the Phils as we have become accustomed to seeing.

However, it’s the pitching where the Phils may just have a slight edge. The Diamondbacks only rank 18th in pitching and 24th in strikeouts per 9. If the offense can start out hot then this game has every chance of turning into a shootout, especially with the Phils throwing their bullpen to the Wolves in the opening game.

The best play here is undoubtedly going to be backing the over. 10 runs seems high, but this is a pair of volatile offenses that should be easily able to get on base in advantageous pitching matchups.
