What you need to know: The Dodgers open a four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night, a period that includes a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday and a daytime game on Wednesday.
The Dodgers maintain a fragile hold on first-place National League West by percentage points (0.636 to 0.629) over their southern SoCal neighbors, the San Diego Padres, following Sunday’s win against Philadelphia, riding Gavin Lux’s brace with two out in the ninth inning which resulted in the draw and win for a 5-4 win, and prevented the Dodgers from an embarrassing four-game Phillies sweep.
Right-footed Tony Gonsolin (3-0 & 1.33 ERA) starts Monday against Diamondbacks left-footed Madison Bumgarner (2-1, 1.78 ERA). In the Dodgers’ first series against Arizona in late April, Los Angeles recorded one win and two losses at Chase Field in Phoenix.
The Diamondbacks scored a three-game streak when they lost two out of three to the Chicago Cubs over the weekend. However, they finished a nine-game home game with five wins and held the season record of over .500 at 18-17.
