Analysis

4% (960) ARIZONA +105

Chris Sale was scheduled to pitch last night but they decided to move him back a day to give him an extra days rest. Chris Sale has had a great season and it has resulted in him making the All Star Team. This is his 7th All Star appearance but his 1st since 2018 so this one is going to be special as he has battled thru injuries over the last few years. So he could be a little distracted tonight. It also must be noted that by pitching tonight he could pitch again on Sunday which would all but eliminate him from actually pitching on Tuesday in the All Star Game. It is an Old school angle but often times pitchers who are named to All Star Game often don’t pitch well in game after getting the nod to being an All Star. Sale will be facing Zav=c Gallen who has had his own injury problems this year but in his 10 starts he has allowed 3 runs or less in 9 of the 10 starts. In 4 of those games he didn’t allow a run. Arizona has been pounding the baseball as they have scored 5 runs or more in 7 of their L8 games. Arizona was flat last night returning home after playing division rivals LA and San Diego. But coming off the loss in 1st game back sets them up for a big effort tonight in the 2nd game of the Home Stand.
