MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks - San Diego Padres
- Title : MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks - San Diego Padres
Arizona Diamondbacks host the San Diego Padres. Arizona won in dramatic fashion on Sunday night, and will look to follow up this with another victory here. Robbie Ray will start for Arizona here, while Richards take the mound for San Diego.
Lot of buzz around Robbie Ray these last few days. His arm-action change is pretty substantial. Sky is the limit if his walks come down.
Theres some value on Arizona here because of how poorly Ray has pitched this season. Robbie Ray has been shelled in three straight outings, allowing six homers and 17 earned runs in 13.1 innings. Its a great opportunity here as hes due to snap out of his funk. Even if he doesnt this offense has been playing more than well enough to deliver a victory. Momentum matters a ton in baseball and Arizona has a lot of it.
The San Diego Padres have been up and down this season. They were looking like a potential breakout team earlier, but four straight losses have sent them back to 11-11.
While the Padres have lost each of their 4 games, the just lost in devastating fashion, and I expect them to come out a bit sluggish and slow for this one.
I also predicit to bet over 9 runs in this game. over 9 runs makes a lot of sence. Arizonas offense is on fire at the moment with 44 runs scored over ethe past 5 games.
My prediction: Diamondbacks win
