Randall Delgado takes the mound for a dispirited Arizona Diamondbacks club that has fallen behind the LA Dodgers by 7.5 games. A reversal that no one thought would be possible in even mid-June. The Diamondbacks have spiraled South in large part to zero consistency from most of the starting pitchers and especially with their bats. Kirk Gibson has tried all he can in revamping the lineup, even switching out multiple players on short notice a few weeks ago. The team is too inconsistent and is just 9-12 since the All-Star break. Until a guy or two steps up and gives the team some momentum to ride for a series, it’s not going to change. The Diamondbacks have only won consecutive games twice since the All-Star break (Cubs, and a two game series with the Rays at home). Look for Baltimore to snap back and get the win tonight.
