Stephen Nover's MLB Thursday Top Ticket
Arizona vs. Miami,
06/01/2017 19:10 EDT,
Score: 3 - 2
Money Line: -120 Arizona
I respect that Miami is playing its best ball winning four in a row. I'm also aware this is a tough traveling spot for the Diamondbacks going to South Florida after playing 14 innings on Wednesday in Pittsburgh with heavy bullpen usage.
But all of this is trumped by a pitching matchup of Zach Greinke versus Jeff Locke and that the Marlins may be without Dee Gordon, who could be rested due to a right leg injury.
Greinke has regained his dominance after an off-season last year. He has dominated the Marlins in eight career starts going 4-0 with a 2.96 ERA against them.
Locke will be making his season debut. He hasn't been good since the first half of the 2013 season. He has a career 6.57 ERA in five appearances, including four starts, versus the Diamondbacks.
