Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers Preview
The three-game National League West series concludes on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, when the Arizona Diamondbacks (47-98, 19-55 away) visit the Los Angeles Dodgers (93-53, 51-23 home). This is a huge mismatch and Los Angeles should complete the sweep Wednesday night.
Arizona has the worst record in the National League, is 48 games behind the first place San Francisco Giants, and are half a game out of having the worst record in all of baseball.
Los Angeles has the second-best record in baseball, but are still second in the National League West, trailing the San Francisco Giants by 2.5 games. The Giants and Dodgers are the only two teams to have already clinched playoff spots. Los Angeles leads the St. Louis Cardinals by 17 games for the first Wild Card spot, so the Wild Card game will be taking place at Dodger Stadium.
