The Los Angeles Dodgers should be a much heavier favorite at home tonight. After losing four out of their last five, the Dodgers realize that they need to kick it in gear right now to make a push in the NL West and NL Wildcard races.
Arizona has no shot at making the postseason after losing six of their last seven to drop to 65-67 on the year. They will be starting Trevor Cahill, who is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.667 WHIP in his last three starts. He has given up eight earned runs over 9 innings in his last two outings.
Aaron Harang has been pretty solid all season for Los Angeles, going 9-8 with a 3.70 ERA over 25 starts. The right-hander is 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA in his last three outings as well. Harang sports a 3.01 ERA and 1.193 WHIP in 14 career starts against Arizona.
The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in their last 4 games vs. a right-handed starter. Arizona is 1-4 in Cahill's last 5 starts overall. The Dodgers are 36-17 in their last 53 Friday games. After losing seven straight to Arizona, Los Angeles gets is hungry for revenge tonight. Roll with the Dodgers Friday.
