San Diego Padres vs. Oakland Athletics, a pair of games between two teams that have not done well in the season. The Padres receive the Athletics after winning the series against the Braves and another series against the Reds, at home in the last 10 games has gone relatively well but there is still a long way to go in the season.
San Diego Padres: We can win at home.
18-21 at home for the Padres, it’s not such a bad record, the San Diego Padres had problems early in the season to win, they lost 4 consecutive games, a complete series against the Brewers 3-0 and a game of the series against the Rockies 4-1. In May things changed for the Padres, since May 5, the team began to improve the record at home, since that date they have won 13 games of 21 at home.
Eric Lauer, a rookie with his first year in MLB will go out to defend the Padres home, he is a pitcher with a record of 3-4 and 6.20 ERA, he has not done so badly in the season, but he must improve to be his first year. At home Lauer is 2-2, he is still stable to start tonight. The Padres score an average of 4.13 runs and 8.97 hits at home.
Oakland Athletics: Instability on the road.
The Athletics are still losing and winning games on the road, the team keeps a record of 20-20 with 50% effectiveness at home, have not been able to win many games and have suffered lossing streak of up to 5 games. In spite of everything, the team has won series against White Sox, Red Sox, Orioles, Diamondbacks, Royals. Against the Astros they could not do anything and were swept 3-0 by the defending champions.
This week the pitchers did a good job against the Angels, the team managed to win the series against the Angels 2-1, they were 3 games tight but well worked. Tonight he will go to mound Paul Blackburn, a rookie with 2 years of experience with the Athletics, 1-1 in the current season and 3-1 last season. The Athletics score only 3.62 runs per game, and suffer up to 8.55 hits on the road, batters receive up to 8.95 strikeouts.
