Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres Prediction

The San Diego Padres are playing their best ball of the season, and they should like their chances at home with Dylan Cease on the mound. The Arizona Diamondbacks are a decent enough team to give a look in the underdog role, but it's hard to get behind Ryne Nelson and his 5.42 ERA on the season. The Padres have also had success against Nelson in a handful of starts. Give me the Padres and the RL to shave down the expensive juice.
