Matchup for G122 - Diam'nd'ac's @ Astros

40 games left this season, and the Diamondbacks are reeling. The Di'mon''ack' are 54-68, 42-51 since A.J. Hinch took the team over, and are 18 GB of Los Angeles. Since the All-Star Break, Arizona is 16-17, they're 4-6 in their last 10, and have lost five straight games - their longest since June 28.
