AD vs PBP Dream11 Prediction | MLB, Major League Baseball | Arizona Diamondbacks vs Pittsburgh Pirates, 22 July


AD vs PBP Dream11 Match Prediction: The Arizona Diamondbacks are in the midst of a scintillating run, their best streak of the current season, which now stands at three games following a whirlwind 11-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the last match. D-Backs hope that they remain in the dreamland, or at least they have forced us to think that they are in uncharted territories if we look at their season record. But one should draw on the optimism and D-Backs have reasons to believe that they can stretch the current run when they play the Pirates in the final match of the three-game series at Chase Field. The match is scheduled for a start at 01:10 AM (IST) on Thursday morning.

The 11-6 scoreline hides an unusual fact that scoring 8 runs in a single inning is not normal. D-Backs managed to do that in the last game and stole away with an unlikely win. Pirates must be smarting still thinking they let opponents off the hook at a crucial juncture. But the Arizona Diamondbacks remain the favourite to win this encounter.
