The MLB is back in action today as the Arizona Diamondbacks will clash with the San Diego Padres. This will be game three of the three-game series between these two teams.
Arizona Diamondbacks Form
The Diamondbacks have been in a good form so far this season. Moreover, they are heading into this game with 7.0 games out of first in the National League West. Also, this Arizona team lost their last 3 games in a row. They need to improve their offensive play and that will be a hard task in this game. This is because the Padres have a solid 3.70 ERA at home for the year. This is a good team but they are going through a bad patch at the moment. Will they get back on winning track in this game? Maybe, but it will be very difficult against a solid Padres team.
On the offensive side of the game, the Diamondback score an average of 5.13 runs per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 9th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have a total of 67 homers so far this season.
On the mound, they have been above average as they are placed on the 13th spot in the league in ERA at 4.18, while also ranking 15th in WHIP at 1.31 and 9th in K’s with 427.
San Diego Padres Form
The Padres are a solid team this season. Moreover, it seems that their game on the mound is reaching new heights. This is mainly because of the good form of the rising star Chris Paddack. The 23 years old rookie pitcher allowed only one ER on five hits and no walks while striking out seven in 6.0 innings of work. The Padres will are at .500 for the year and 9.0 games out of first in the National League West. Nevertheless, this is a young team with a lot of potentials.
On the offensive side of the game, the Padres score an average of 3.79 runs which is enough for the 27th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have a total of 67 homers so far this season.
On the mound, they have been above average as they are placed on the 11th spot in the league in ERA at 4.05, while also ranking 7th in WHIP at 1.23 and 12th in K’s with 414.
The Diamondbacks are not playing well lately. Moreover, it seems that there are no signs that they will improve their form in the near future. No doubt that this is a good team but at the moment they do not show their full potential. On the other side, the Padres are a young and talented team. On the mound, they have been convincing and that is the main reason why I believe that they will win this game. Take San Diego in this one.
