The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks meet in MLB action at Chase Field on Sunday.
The San Diego Padres expect another victory after winning eight of their last ten games. The Padres have scored 14 runs in their last three games and the San Diego Padres have won seven games in a row with three or more runs. Wil Myers leads the Padres with 17 goals and seven RBI, Manny Machado and Manuel Margot scored 28 goals and 13 RBI. Eric Lauer gets the ball and is 2-1 with 4.76 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Lauer is 1-1 with 2.76 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win here to make a four-game defeat. The Diamondbacks have allowed 14 runs in the last three games and four or more runs in eight of the last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost six of their last 10 games if they allow four or more runs. Offensively, David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 24 goals and seven RBI, while Adam Jones and Nick Ahmed come together for 38 goals and 16 RBI. Zack Greinke gets the ball and is 1-1 with 7.16 ERA and 22 draws this season. Greinke is 12-2 with an era of 2.29 in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 32-65 in the last 97 Sunday games, 4: 1 in Lauer's last 5 starts and 4: 1 in Lauer's last 5 starts. The Diamondbacks are 2-5 in their last 7 against National League West, 0-4 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series and 0-7 in their last 7 Sunday games. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in Greinke's last 6 starts against Padres and the Padres are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona. The end is 6: 0 in Greinke's last 6 starts in total. The end is 3-1-1 in Lauer's last five starts.
Lauer has been rocked in the last two launches and received nine runs and 13 goals in his last 11 innings, including a game against Arizona less than two weeks ago. Greinke looked terrible in his first three starts, allowing 13 earned runs and six homers in 16.1 innings. Greinke, however, was the owner of Padres during his career. Still, I'm not trying to get past one of those pitchers, so I'm going to deal with the over between these clubs.
