Looking to snap a six-game losing streak, the Arizona Diamondbacks (42-48) welcome in the Miami Marlins (38-54) for a three-game series at Chase Field beginning on Monday.
The D-backs have struggled as of late, there’s no denying that. After sweeping the Texas Rangers in two games back on July 7-8, the D-backs found themselves back at .500 with a 42-42 record.
Since then, they dropped three to the New York Mets prior to the All-Star Break and were swept by the San Francisco Giants over the weekend to start the “second-half” of the season.
Arizona is only 3-7 in their last 10 games and now sit 9 1/2 games out of first in the NL West, along with the San Diego Padres.
Despite all the negativity, there is some glimmer of hope coming into this Marlins series. The D-backs are 4-0 against Miami this season. They swept the Marlins in four games back on May 18-21 at Marlins Park, outscoring Miami 20-11 during the series.
The Marlins, meanwhile, aren’t in any better shape. They are also 3-7 over their last 10 games and were just swept by the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
With that, here is a look at the pitching match-ups for this series…
