Prediction

Surprinsingly the Dodgers were dominated by Bumgarner who was allowed 50 runs in his last 9 starts and will now face the Dbacks best pitcher. Zac Gallen has been outstanding this season and dominated the Dodgers the last time he faced them. Julio Urias will take the mound for the Dodgers who's also having a great season and the Dodgers have won in 15 of his last 16 starts. Expect a close game as both starters will be dominant on the mound. Take the under.

PICK: Under 7 (-110)
