The Arizona Diamondbacks dropped their second straight game, and for the third consecutive time to Los Angeles this season.
Arizona has not only had their struggles against the Dodgers, but have lost seven of their last 10 games overall.
There weren't many positives to take away from Tuesday's loss as Arizona recorded just three hits on the night, however Christian Walker went 1-for-4 and extended his hitting streak to three games and has now totaled a hit in six of his last seven.

Where the game will be won or lost
The pitching matchup on Wednesday night features Jon Duplantier for Arizona and Kenta Maeda for Los Angeles.
Maeda ranks third in MLB with seven wins (7-2) this season, and also sports a 3.61 ERA with 62 strikeouts in 11 starts.
Duplantier started last week against the New York Mets and had a shaky outing. Duplantier allowed three earned runs on six hits in a season long five innings while striking out four.
If Maeda being on the hill doesn't give you enough confidence, the Dodgers offense should. As I mentioned above, Los Angeles averages nine runs a game against Arizona. Anticipate the Dodger providing enough run support for Maeda to win an eighth game.
