The Arizona Diamondbacks just never got anything going on Monday as they lost to the Padres. Ender Inciarte and Miguel Montero had two hits each and David Peralta had a hit as the Diamondbacks scored one run on six hits. Starting pitcher Trevor Cahill allowed five hits and three runs while striking out five over 4.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 3-10 for the season. For Tuesday’s game the D-backs start Wade Miley who has lost his last three decisions. For the season Miley has allowed 174 hits and 84 earned runs while striking out 163 over 176 innings for a 7-10 record and a 4.30 ERA.
San Diego is 11-1 as a home favorite, 6-1 in their last seven games, and 4-1 in Despaigne’s last five games against a team with a losing record. Arizona is 3-7 following a loss, 4-12 in their last 16 games, and 0-5 in Miley’s last five starts. Arizona is 2-5 in Miley’s last seven road starts at San Diego.
Miley has pitched well of late and I look for Arizona to ride him to the win here.
