Diamondbacks vs. Rangers Prediction

I’m on the Diamondbacks here. I just can’t get there with the Texas Rangers while this team continues to struggle and fail to live up to the expectations set for them after winning the world series last season. The Diamondbacks haven’t fared much better, but Arizona’s still had some semblance of success and Brandon Pfaadt, while having his ups and downs this season, has been a solid arm at times and has started to have some success in recent outings. I just think the Diamondbacks are also playing the better baseball right now, so give me Arizona here.
