Slade Cecconi (1-3 W-L, 5.27 ERA) vs. Gavin Stone (4-1 W-L, 3.27 ERA)

Slade Cecconi has had an inconsistent and challenging season so far, evidenced by his 5.27 ERA and 1-3 win-loss record over 27.1 innings pitched. Although Cecconi may benefit from having a low WHIP (0.99), his propensity to give up long balls (5 homers allowed) may present challenges against Los Angeles Dodgers powerful lineup. Cecconi must utilize his strikeout ability effectively against them to manage games efficiently while protecting his health as the season continues.

Gavin Stone of the Dodgers has shown tremendous promise this year on their mound, boasting an outstanding 3.27 ERA and 4-1-0 record to match. In 44 innings pitched he has maintained control while restricting significant damage; only conceding three homer runs all season long. Stone will need to adjust his approach against Arizona in particular managing their middle innings where their resilience has proven successful.
