The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Atlanta Braves will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at SunTrust Park.

The Diamondbacks will give the ball to starter Taijuan Walker in this one. Right hander Walker is 6-4 this season with a 3.65 ERA.

The Braves will counter Walker with R.A. Dickey. Right hander Dickey has a 4.14 ERA to go along with a 6-5 record this season.

Acquired in an offseason trade with Seattle, Walker has provided Arizona with stability in its rotation despite missing nearly a month with a blister on his right index finger. The 24-year-old is 2-1 in five starts since returning from the disabled list, giving up five runs on five hits in five innings of a loss Saturday against Cincinnati after surrendering three runs or less in his previous four outings. Walker has posted a 2.65 ERA while going 4-2 in seven road starts.

Dickey has been outstanding lately for the Braves, carrying a no-hitter into the sixth inning Friday at Washington only to see the bullpen blow what would have been the 42-year-old’s third victory in his past four starts. Dickey is 3-1 in his past six outings with a 2.77 ERA and a .200 opponents’ batting average, holding the opposition to one run or fewer five times while pitching seven innings on four occasions. Dickey is 5-1 at home with a 3.30 ERA, posting 40 strikeouts and 17 walks in 57 1/3 innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Braves listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Arizona Diamondbacks surprised most observers with their strong start to the season, but enter the post All-Star break looking to snap a 3-8 skid when they open a three-game series Friday at the Atlanta Braves. The Diamondbacks hold a two-game lead over Colorado for the top National League wild-card spot, but have hit just .209 as a team during their past 11 games while scoring more than three runs only three times.

The firepower is present for Arizona to snap its offensive funk, as All-Stars Paul Goldschmidt and Jake Lamb enter the second half tied for fourth in the NL in RBIs (67) and Goldschmidt leads all NL position player with a 4.2 WAR. The surprising Braves remain on the edge of the NL playoff chase, Atlanta opening play Friday just eight games behind Colorado for the final wild-card slot. Freddie Freeman, who has moved to third base upon returning from a wrist injury, is batting .385 since rejoining the lineup with at least one hit in all six games and four multi-hit performances. Ender Inciarte, a former Arizona player who was the Braves’ lone All-Star, ranks second in the NL in hits (112).

In their last action, Atlanta was a 10-5 loser on the road against the Nationals. Bettors on Washington at -130 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (15) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 2-1 loser as they battled the Reds on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Reds at 143 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
