San Diego is 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 5-3 in their last 8 road games. The over is 6-1-1 in San Diego’s last 8 Saturday games. Arizona is 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 20-41 in their last 61 Saturday games. The over is 5-0 in Arizona’s last 5 games. San Diego is 19-8 in these two teams last 27 head to head meetings.


The Diamondbacks will look to make it two wins in a row after dominating the Padres on Friday night. Arizona has played better than I thought they would so far this season, but their team ERA is 4.97. Arizona is starting Merrill Kelly, who has allowed four earned runs in his last 12 innings of work. I like how Arizona has looked in recent games and I am not sure how Musgrove will look his first game action, so I am taking Arizona in this matchup.
