Both the Diamondbacks and the Phillies have been struggling mightily on offense.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will close out their 10-game homestand with a three-game set against the Philadelphia Phillies. After getting a win on Sunday to close out the series against the Atlanta Braves, Arizona snapped a five-game losing streak. However, with the Phillies coming to town, they will be facing a team in a similar situation.

Arizona is struggling offensively and have suffered injuries to key players. Such has been the case for the Phillies. While Arizona just got Justin Upton back to the lineup, they are without Chris Young and Stephen Drew. Philly is without their biggest run producers in Ryan Howard and Chase Utley.

On the pitching staff, Arizona just recently placed starter Daniel Hudson on the disabled list. The Phillies just put Cliff Lee on the disabled list as well.

On Monday, Arizona is starting Wade Miley for the first time this season. He made several starts down the stretch in 2011. He made the big league roster as a long reliever and in his first two appearances looked sharp.

Here are the probable pitching matchups for the series:

Monday, 6:40 PM: Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 0.93) vs. Wade Miley (1-0, 4.76)

Tuesday, 6:40 PM: Vance Worley (1-1, 2.37) vs, Josh Collmenter (0-1, 10.22)

Wednesday, 12:40 PM: Cole Hamels (2-1, 2.95) vs. Trevor Cahill (1-1, 2.84)

TV Broadcast schedule:

Monday's game will be televised on FS-AZ. Tuesday's game, because of the Phoenix Suns game that will air, will be the on the air on FS-AZ+. Wednesday's day game will not be televised.
