Free Total Pick:
A nice start to the season for Dodgers pitcher Dan Haren who has 7 quality starts in 8 outings. He’s faced Arizona twice this season pitching well at home allowing 2 earned runs in 7.1 innings but struggled on the road going only 5.2 innings and allowing 3 runs on 10 hits in his worst start of 2014. The team will need him to get some innings today after using 6 pitchers in yesterday’s blowout loss. Josh Collmenter gets the ball for the Diamondbacks who has 1 QS in his 6 starts this year and it was at home although his 4.50 ERA at Chase Field is less than impressive. Chris Segal is behind home plate today with his 5-1 over/under record and 12.83 ERA in games he’s umpired this season.
Take Over 9 +112.
