The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Chase Field. On Thursday night it was the Diamondbacks that came away with the 4-2 victory. On Friday the Padres got a little revenge coming away with the 3-0 victory. 

The Padres have gotten some pretty good pitching and if it wasn’t for a terrible 9th inning in Game 1, San Diego would be 2-0. Over the two games the Padres have scored only five runs total. On Friday the best player for San Diego was Jurickson Profar who finished with two hits and two RBI’s. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona Diamondbacks who had one good inning in Game 1 and outside of that the offense has really struggled. On Friday the Diamondbacks only had two runs, and couldn’t get the offense going.

Getting the start for the Padres will be Joe Musgrove and last year with the team he had an 11-9 record and an ERA of 3.18. In this game it’s going to be important that Musgrove has a good game. 

Getting the start for the Diamondbacks will be Zach Davies and last year with the Chicago Cubs he had some major issues. In 32 games, Davies had a 6-12 record and an ERA of 5.78. Pitching at Chase Field isn’t going to be any easier, and they need Davies to be better. 

The Padres are 5-16 in their last 21 during Game 3 of their series. The D-Backs are 5-11 in their last 16 home games. The over is 6-1 in the Padres last seven games during game 3 of the series. The over is 5-0 in the D-Backs last five games played Saturday. The Padres are 5-16 in their last 21 meetings in Arizona. 

Zach Davies got hit hard in most of his starts last season, and the Padres are going to hop on early and often in this game. Look for the Diamondbacks to struggle to score against Joe Musgrove, and this game is going to get out of hand early. Back the Padres to win this game on the run line.
