Arizona Diamondbacks, Oakland Athletics Lineups For Game 1

The Arizona Diamondbacks are back on the road after a three game homestand against the Cleveland Indians.

In order to properly prepare Chase Field for the All-Star Game festivities, MLB decided to schedule Arizona on the road for the final ten games of the first half of the season.

When it is all said and done, the Diamondbacks will have played 16 of the last 19 games of the first half on the road, nine of which were in American League parks, where Wily Mo Pena could play as the designated hitter.

Arizona will travel to Milwaukee and St. Louis before the All-Star break. The D-backs open up the second half of the season with a ten game homestand.
