The San Diego Padres will visit the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second game of their series in the National League West division matchup from Chase Field on Friday Night. The weather is expected to be hot with clear skies and absolutely no rain.

The Padres are coming off of a 2 run win against the Diamondbacks in their last game. Yu Darvish got the start for the Padres in this one. He threw six no-hit innings before being pulled with a 2-0 lead after throwing 92 pitches. He had three strikes in the win.

The Padres will need to get some more runs home if they want to make this one competitive.  San Diego left-hander Sean Manaea will start on Friday night. Last season he averaged a 3.91 ERA with 194 strikeouts and a 1.23 whip.

The Diamondbacks are coming off of a 2 run win against the Padres in their last game. Seth Beer had a great game for the Diamondbacks in the win. Seth Beer launched a game-winning, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to seal the deal.

Diamondbacks left-hander, Merrill Kelly will be the starter for this one. Last season he averaged a 4.44 ERA. He had 130 strikeouts and a 1.29 whip.

The Diamondbacks will have to count on another impressive performance from someone like Beer in order to get another win in this early season series. 

The Padres are 1-6 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and are 1-7 in their last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Padres are 0-5 in their last 5 Friday games. The Padres are 4-15 in the last 19 meetings in Arizona.

The over is 13-6 in the Padres last 19 games vs. a right-handed starter and is 8-3 in Diamondbacks last 11 games as a home underdog.

The Padres lost this one because they took ou their best pitcher, Darvish will not get the start here and that will poorly impact the pitching of this club. I like for the Diamondbacks to continue to dominate here and get the win in this one. I’ll back the Diamondback in this one.
