The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Sunday in a National League West MLB showdown at Petco Park.
These two teams have played three games so far this year and it was the Padres that were able to win each of the three games.
The Padres offense has been the talking point most of the offseason and they have lived up to the expectations so far. In two of the three games they have scored at least seven runs. On Saturday it was once again Manny Machado that was the sar of the show as he had three hits and two RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Diamondbacks who knew they might have some struggles coming into the season and that has been the case. The pitching staff has struggled, and their offense hasn’t had enough success. ON Saturday the Diamondbacks had four hits, two errors and zero earned runs.
On the mound for the Diamondbacks will be Taylor Widener who pitched 20 innings during the 2020 season and he finished with an ERA of 4.50 and a WHIP of 1.30
On the mound for the Padres will be Chris Paddack who wasn’t great during the 2020 season finishing with a 4-5 record and an ERA of 4.73
The DBacks are 1-5 in their last six games played on Sunday. The Padres are 7-0 in their last seven games played on Sunday. The over is 4-1 in the Dbacks last five games overall. THe over is 5-2 in the Padres last seven games overall. The under is 7-3 in the last 11 meetings played between the two teams. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings played between the two teams in San Diego.
I don’t like the production of Paddack in 2020 and I think he is going to let down the Padres in this game. Look for the Diamondbacks to get their offense going early and they will come away with the victory. In terms of the total I do expect plenty of scoring and for the over to cash.
