NL West Division foes will square off on Tuesday afternoon, when the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers play the first game of a doubleheader. The Diamondbacks (18-18) are looking to snap a three-game losing skid and trail first place Los Angeles by five full games. Last night, Christian Walker and David Peralta homered for Arizona during a 5-4 road loss.

Thirty-three year old righty Merrill Kelly (3-1 1.71 ERA) is off to a blazing start for the Diamondbacks. Through 42 innings, Kelly has allowed just one home run and has posted a 1.12 WHIP.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 12 of their first 17 home games and hold a half-game lead over San Diego for first place. On Monday, Los Angeles SP Tony Gonsolin improved to 4-0 on the season by allowing two runs across six frames. Chris Taylor connected on a two-run blast in the sixth inning to give the Dodgers a 5-2 lead.

Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts has yet to name a starting pitcher for this contest. The Dodgers have plenty of quality options on a staff that is tied with the New York Yankees for the best ERA (2.74) in the majors.
