In their latest contest, Arizona scored three first-inning runs and cruised to a 6-2 victory.
Arizona Diamondbacks at Detroit Tigers prop and odds for 6/9Yardbarker player prop: Merrill Kelly over 5. 5 KsArizona's Merrill Kelly has gone over 5. 5 Ks in five of his last six games, averaging 7. 83/game in that stretch. Today he gets a Tigers team seriously struggling against right-handed pitching. On the year, Detroit has fanned at the sixth-highest rate against RHP, and just this week, four straight starting righties have piled up 8+ strikeouts against the Tigers.
Kelly has been racking up strikeouts along the way, fanning 47 in his last six starts. He gave up two solo homers to Atlanta last Friday, but those were the only runs he surrendered in seven innings. "Having Merrill on the mound with his stuff, his mindset, his mentality -- that dog mentality -- it's easy to feed off, " first baseman Christian Walker said. "When your guy is out there, putting himself on the line and coming through in big moments, you have to get him runs. "Kelly is 0-1 with a 6.
He also has supplied 24 extra-base hits and 25 RBIs. "He is such an impact player, " Lovullo said. "When he's drawing walks - which he's been doing for the past month - and slugging the baseball, he can just redirect the game in one swing. You have to take notice as to where he's at when you're game-planning against him. " Merrill Kelly (7-3, 2. 80 ERA), who was scheduled to pitch Thursday, will now open the series against the Tigers. The veteran right-hander has won six of his last seven starts, with a no-decision in the other outing.
