Pitching Probables

Friday: RHP Taijuan Walker (2-1, 3.94 ERA) vs. LHP Alex Wood (1-0, 1.00 ERA)

Saturday: LHP Robbie Ray (1-0, 1.96 ERA) vs. RHP Kenta Maeda (1-1, 7.07 ERA)

Sunday: RHP Shelby Miller (2-1, 3.50 ERA vs. RHP Brandon McCarthy (2-0, 2.12 ERA)

Walker will face the Dodgers for the second time in as many starts. He pitched well and earned a win.

Maeda always seems to pitch well against the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks will get a second look at their former teammate. McCarthy lasted five innings and gave up two earned runs.

Players to Watch:

Adrian Gonzalez: Gonzalez owns Diamondbacks pitching, especially at Chase  Field.

Paul Goldschmidt: Goldschmidt is a Dodger killer.

Corey Seager: One of the best players in all of baseball. Diamondbacks pitchers talked extensively about how tough of an at-bat Seager is.
