The division rival Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks are set to renew hostilities on Thursday when they meet at Chase Field.

Right hander Kenta Maeda will take the mound for the Dodgers to start this game. Maeda is 12-5 this season with a 3.76 ERA.

It’ll be Zack Greinke toeing the rubber for the Diamondbacks in this contest. Right hander Greinke is 15-6 with a 3.14 ERA so far this season.

Maeda moved to 3-1 over his last five starts by holding Milwaukee to one run on one hit over six innings last Friday. The 29-year-old native of Japan has gone 8-2 with a 2.70 ERA and a 58-to-12 strikeout-to-walk ratio over his last 11 starts since June 18. Goldschmidt is 4-for-23 against Maeda, who tossed five strong innings against Arizona on Aug. 8 and owns a 3-2 record and 4.18 ERA in nine career starts against the Diamondbacks.

Greinke threw a season-high 111 pitches and allowed three runs (two earned) over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-3 victory last Friday against San Francisco. The 33-year-old has been nearly unbeatable at home this season, going 12-1 with a 2.36 ERA in 15 starts at Chase Field. Greinke is 3-4 with a 4.31 ERA in nine career starts against the Dodgers but has struggled to contain Corey Seager (6-for-12, two home runs).

Oddsmakers currently have the Dodgers listed as 114-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

If nothing else, the Arizona Diamondbacks are giving the Los Angeles Dodgers reason to worry should the teams meet in the postseason. The surging Diamondbacks have won six in a row heading into Thursday’s finale of a three-game series against the visiting Dodgers, who have lost four straight for the first time since May 18-21, 2016.

Paul Goldschmidt bolstered his case for National League MVP honors and homered for the third straight game in Wednesday’s 6-4 victory as Arizona moved three games ahead of Colorado for the National League’s top wild-card spot. Adam Rosales and Chris Herrmann also homered for the Diamondbacks, who can even the season series against the Dodgers at eight wins apiece with a victory Thursday. Los Angeles, which leads the NL West by a remarkable 17 games, activated rookie sensation Cody Bellinger from the disabled list Wednesday after he missed the previous nine games due to a sprained ankle. Bellinger, who leads the Dodgers with 34 home runs and 79 RBIs, started at first place over Adrian Gonzalez and went 1-for-4 from the cleanup spot.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 6-4 winner as they battled the Dodgers on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Diamondbacks at 117 were rewarded, while the 10 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Los Angeles was a 6-4 loser on the road against the Diamondbacks. Bettors on Arizona at 117 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (10) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
