BIG AL's MLB 3-GAME BASEBALL PACKAGE (GO 3-0)!
San Diego Padres (24-17) at Oakland Athletics (23-13)

At 4:10 pm, our selection is on the San Diego Padres over the Oakland Athletics. Few pitchers have benefited more from their offense this season than Oakland's Mike Fiers. The 35-year-old RH has some pretty scary numbers -- 10.2 hits allowed per nine innings, a 1.91 K:BB ratio, a 1.43 WHIP and an ERA of almost five runs. Yet somehow Fiers is 4-1 in his seven starts. And when you look at his run support, you can understand why he's had that much success. The A's have scored an amazing 7.1 runs on average per 27 outs that Fiers has pitched this season. Those numbers simply aren't sustainable and at some point the won-lost record is going to reflect Fiers' poor pitching stats. It could start to unravel this afternoon against one of the best offenses in the Majors. San Diego's 233 runs scored through their first 41 games is tops in baseball. The Padres lost last night to the A's and LH Sean Manaea but they are still 17-9 (+7 games on the moneyline) in their last 26 games vs. RH starters. Take San Diego.
