At 42 losses, only the Tampa Bay Rays have a lower winning percentage than the Arizona Diamondbacks. Their -54 run differential is only better than their division rival the San Diego Padres. They are the next team on the Milwaukee Brewers schedule, a team that is currently second in the National League with a 41-29 record. The Diamondbacks schedule has done them no favors recently. They’ve played the Atlanta Braves, the surging Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the previous three series, and face the National League-leading San Francisco Giants after. Diamondbacks tickets are averaging $32.75 for the series, 47 percent below the season average.
6/16 MIL Wily Peralta vs. ARI Brandon McCarthy | Avg. Price: $32 | Get-in Price: $11
Brandon McCarthy leads the Arizona rotation in WAR and has issued the least amount of walks on the team, and still has a 5.29 ERA. For the Brewers, Wily Peralta leads the team in ERA through 13 starts. The average price of the games is $32, and the get-in price is $11.
6/17 MIL Kyle Lohse vs. ARI Wade Miley | Avg. Price: $29 | Get-in Price: $8
Tuesday’s game is the only game in the series with a get-in price as low as $8. Wade Miley gets the start for the Diamondbacks and he leads the team with 93.2 innings pitched in 15 starts. He also leads the team in strikeouts, but that’s probably the last good thing you can say about him. The average price of the game is also the cheapest of the series at $29.
6/18 MIL Matt Garza vs. ARI Chase Anderson | Avg. Price: $33 | Get-in Price: $11
Chase Anderson actually leads the Diamondbacks in ERA at 3.21 in his six starts, and has a sparkling 5-1 record. But Anderson hasn’t been particularly impressive, rating as a replacement level pitcher. Matt Garza had a poor start to the season, but has been great so far in the month of June. He leads the team in ERA, WAR and is second in innings pitched. The get-in price jumps back up to $11 for the game, and the average price is $33.
6/19 MIL Yovani Gallardo vs. ARI Josh Collmenter | Avg. Price: $37 | Get-in Price: $11
Josh Collmenter is second on the team in FIP and WAR, all while walking a reasonable amount of batters and giving up an acceptable amount of home runs. But all that means is he’s been ok on a terrible team. The average price is the highest of the series at $37, and the get-in price is $11.
