The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. 

The Padres have been able to beat the Diamondbacks in each of their first two games of this series. 

In the first game of the series it was the offense that was the difference for the Padres, but in the second game it was  the pitching that was the difference giving up only two runs. On Friday the star of the show for the Padres was Eric Hosmer who had three hits and drove in three runs. This is a talented offense and it seems every night it could be someone different who steps up.

On the other side of the matchup is the D-Backs who will be looking for his first win of the season after losing the first two games. In the first game of the season the offense was strong scoring seven runs, but it wasn’t enough. In the first game the star of the show was Asdrubal Cabrera who finished the game driving in three runs. 

Getting the start for the Diamondbacks will be Caleb Smith who only had four appearances last year with Arizona last year but he finished with a 2.45 ERA. 

On the mound for the Padres will be Joe Musgrove who has come over from the Pirates and someone the team hopes can be a solid starter for them. Last season for the Pirates he didn’t get any run support and even though he only had an ERA of 3.86 he only went 1-5. 

The Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last seven games overall. The D-Backs are 7-19 in their last 26 road games. The Padres are 5-1 in their last six games as a favorite. The over is 4-0 in the Diamondbacks' last four games overall. The under is 7-3 in the last ten meetings played between the two teams. The D-Backs are 1-4 in their last five games played in San Diego. 

This is a strong pitching matchup on the mound and points are going to be hard to come by in this game. Look for a lower-scoring game that stays under the total.
