Arizona Diamondbacks vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 5/17/2023


On Wednesday, the Oakland Athletics will continue a homestand looking for their second straight win when hosting the finale of a series versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.


Oakland improved to 10-34 overall and 5-19 when playing at home following a 9-8 home win over Arizona in game 2 of a series but remained stuck in the basement of the AL West with 17 games behind Texas in the first place while posting a run difference of -159 for the year.


The Athletics struggled in their campaign this season after losing eight of the last ten outings but snapped a three-game losing streak with a 9-8 home triumph against the D-Backs the previous night.   


On Wednesday afternoon, the Oakland Athletics management will nod to right-hander Luis Medina to start the last outing of a three-game series versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.


The righty starter is 1-3 for the season with an ERA of 7.34, a WHIP of 1.45, and struck out nine hitters while relinquishing 13 hits, three free bases, and three home runs in over 11.0 innings of work.


Right-hander Medina has given away three earned runs with a strong 0.83 WHlP and retired three batters in six innings pitched in a 0-4 home loss to the Texas Rangers in his start on May 11, 2023.   


The totals went OVER in 6 of Oakland’s last nine contests, while the Athletics are 2-8 SU in their previous ten games played.


The totals went UNDER in 8 of Oakland’s last 12 outings against Arizona, while the Athletics are 3-16 straight up in their previous 19 home matches. 


Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Oakland Athletics. The MLB Pick for this contest is Arizona -148.


Though the Athletics will be playing at home in the series finale, they will lose versus the excellent team of the Diamondbacks, as Oakland played bad baseball this season.


Moreover, Arizona will be sending a better starter in Ryne Nelson (1-2, 6.20 ERA), who led the D-Backs in a 7-5 victory against the Giants on May 12, while Luis Medina took a 0-4 shutout loss for the Athletics versus the Rangers on May 11.


The prediction: Arizona Diamondbacks will win 8-2.
