After a day off Monday, these teams are back beginning a new series on Tuesday. How did August go for the Dodgers bats? How about setting a new team record with 57 homers for the month! Things are not so rosy for the Diamondbacks as they endured plenty of losing in recent weeks but look for LA's Julio Urias to help the Arizona bats come back to life here. Urias has struggled in his last two starts with those outings lasting just 5 and 2 / 3 innings and the lefty allowing 5 earned runs on 10 hits and 4 walks in those two shortened appearances. The Diamondbacks faced Urias exactly one month ago to the day so seeing him again will also be an edge for the hitters and they catch the southpaw in a downward trend as his fastball velocity is down and yet the velocity on his offspeed stuff is up. That is not the dynamic you want to present to major league hitters and until he sorts this out he needs to be faded. The good news for Urias here is that he should be the recipient of plenty of run support in this one. Arizona has lost 10 of its last 11 games and allowed an average of 5 runs per game during this stretch. The Dodgers have won 15 of 18 games and scored an average of 6.3 runs per game during this stretch. LA will be facing Alex Young of the Diamondbacks in this one. He was great in day games last season but had a 4.31 ERA in his night games compared to a 2.17 ERA in day games. That trend has continued this season for Young as he has a 5.40 ERA in evening action and now faces the best team in baseball! The Dodgers have seen Young twice out of the bullpen already this season and in his lone career start at Dodger Stadium, Young got rocked for 4 earned runs in 3 and 1 / 3 innings! Per our computer math model, more of the same for Young is on tap in this one! The Dodgers .499 slugging percentage in home games ranks among the best marks in the majors! Bet the OVER in LA Dodgers in late night action Tuesday.
