Shane’s Free Pick

Wacha has been awful this season and he is going to really struggle again in this game. In his last game he gave up seven runs, and he’s going to really struggle again here. Look for the Diamondbacks to run up the score, and the Padres inconsistent offense will have issues keeping up.
