Arizona’s offense was firing on all cylinders on Monday. The first four hitters in the Diamondbacks’ lineup combined to go 7-for-16 with six RBIs. Expect more offense on Tuesday as the Over is 5-2 in Diamondbacks’ last 7 games as a favorite. Also, expect Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton to make up for his embarassing 0-for-4 performance.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Marlins LH Brad Hand (0-1, 6.21 ERA) vs. Diamondbacks LH Vidal Nuno (2-5, 5.42)
Hand has made one career start against Arizona and was tagged with the loss after walking five and giving up four runs (three earned) in five frames. He has a difficult task on Tuesday.
The Over is 10-2-2 in Marlins’ last 14 games against a left-handed starter. The Miami offense should have their way with Nuno, will make his first start since being traded.
