Shane’s Free Pick

Blake Snell’s record isn’t great, but at times he hasn’t had a ton of run support. In his last start against the Phillies he gave up zero runs and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. The Padres might not run up the score, but they will score at least four runs and that will be enough to get the job done. Back the Padres.
