2 units on Arizona +110 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Joe Saunders might have needed a new start, and he is getting it in Arizona, where he has pitched better overall in his four starts since being traded here. Saunders was 33-14 for the Angels the last two years before struggling this season, so he certainly can win some games. The Diamondbacks can score some runs, and in their last eight vs. lefthanders they are 6-2, including 5-2 at home. The Reds have taken the first two here, so their will be extra motivation with Arizona to avoid the home sweep, something that has happened just two times since early May. I like the Arizona Diamondbacks in this one.
