The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Chase Field.  The Padres have won the first two games of this series. 

The Padres come into this game with an 80-66 record overall and on Saturday it was the pitching that was strong giving up only five hits and zero runs on the way to the victory. The Padres are averaging 4.38 runs per game which is 14th in the league. The pitching has been inconsistent this season and they are ranked 14th in the league. Manny Machado has hit 28 home runs and driven in 90 RBIs. 

The Diamondbacks come into this game with a 68-77 record overall and over the last two games they have scored only three runs total. The Diamondbacks' offense averaging 4.43 runs per game which is 13th in the league. The Diamondbacks pitching staff is ranked 21st in the league. Christian Walker has hit 34 home runs and driven in 83 RBIs.

On the mound for the Padres is Yu Darvish who sits with a 14-7 record overall and an ERA of 3.16. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he went eight innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Diamondbacks is Ryne Nelson who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 0.00. In his last start against the Dodgers, he went six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Padres are 4-0 in Darvish’s last four starts. The under is 5-1-1 in Darvish’s last seven road starts. The under is 5-1 in the Diamondbacks' last six home games against a team with a winning record. 

There were only two runs scored on Saturday and I expect that is about where this game will end up. Darvish has been strong this season and in his last start he gave up only one run. Nelson in his last start gave up zero runs. Look for both offenses to really struggle and this game is going to stay under the total. This is one of the best plays on the entire MLB board on Sunday.
