D'Backs vs Twins Free Pick August 19, 2017.
Arizona lost Game 1 of this series in Minnesota by a score of 10-3, but the D'Backs are favored to bounce back in Game 2.
Zack Greinke will toe the slab for Arizona, and he's having a phenomenal season. The veteran is 14-5 with a 3.01 ERA, and he's been the epitome of consistency. He's 3-1 with a 3.43 ERA in his last six starts.
The Twins will hand the ball to Jose Berrios, who started off hot but has faded in the second half. The 23 year old was rocked for six runs on six hits and a pair of walks over just 3 1/3 innings in a loss at Detroit his last time out. He's 2-3 with a 6.18 ERA in six starts since the All Star break.
Paul Goldschmidt is a favorite to win the NL MVP, and he comes in batting .339 with seven home runs in the month of August.
