This is a play on the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS as part of our MLB Saturday Triple Play. The Diamondbacks were shut out in this series opener last night 3-0 but a Dodgers loss as well kept them in a tie with Los Angeles atop the National League West. It has been an up and down run of late for Arizona, especially with the offense but that should change tonight and going back, the Diamondbacks are 5-0 in their last five games following a loss. The Reds are still four games under .50 at home and they have struggled to put together consecutive solid efforts as going back, they are 0-5 in their last five games after allowing two runs or less in their previous game. Arizona sends Robbie Ray to the hill and has admittedly been inconsistent this season as Arizona has lost his last five starts but he pitched well in the two road outings. He has been exceptional away from home with a 2.57 ERA and 1.27 WHIP and going back, the Diamondbacks are 11-0 in his last 11 starts as a road favorite of -110 or higher. Matt Harvey has struggled since the All Star Break with a 10.66 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in three starts. He has shown some positive signs since coming to Cincinnati, but they are rare as he has been awful most of the time with only three quality outings in 15 starts. 9* (903) Arizona Diamondbacks

This is a play on the MIAMI MARLINS as part of our MLB Saturday Triple Play. New York won the series opener last night to make it two straight wins but winning three in a row will be a challenge as it has done so only twice since May 22nd. The Mets are just 10-27 in their last 37 games following any sort of win while going 8-20 in their last 28 games after allowing two runs or less in their previous game. Miami has lost three straight and nine of 10 games, but it is in good position tonight. Despite the Friday loss, the Marlins are 24-11 in their last 35 home games against teams with a winning percentage between .380 and .460. Dan Straily gets the ball for Miami and he had a solid run from late June to the All Star Break, but he has struggled in three starts since then. To his credit, those games came against Washington, Philadelphia and Atlanta. The Marlins are 7-1 in his last eight starts when their opponent allows two runs or less in their previous game. Corey Oswalt has pitched well since entering the rotation, but this is his first road start since July 4th and he has a 7.94 ERA in two road starts. One of those came here in his first ever start back in June and Miami got to him for six runs in 2.2 innings. 10* (908) Miami Marlins

This is a play on the COLORADO ROCKIES as part of our MLB Saturday Triple Play. After losing the series opener on Thursday, Colorado bounced back with a 5-4 come-from-behind win last night to snap a three-game slide. The Rockies can use that momentum for the final two games where they can close the gap in the division and the Wild Card race. The Rockies are 10-3 in their last 13 games after scoring five runs or more in their previous game. The Dodgers remain tied with Arizona for first place in the National League West, so this is a big weekend for them as well but being listed as a significant road favorite in this matchup is not ideal. The Dodgers are 2-6 in their last eight games when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game. Kyle Freeland has been extremely consistent this season with a 3.04 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 23 starts. While many will be surprised that he has a 2.18 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 10 home starts, seven of which have been quality outings, he is familiar with pitching in the thin air of Colorado as he grew up pitching in Denver. The Rockies are 16-9 in his last 25 starts as an underdog. Walker Buehler has a 2.77 ERA at home but that jumps to 5.26 on the road and was hit hard in his lone start at Coors Field. 9* (910) Colorado Rockies
