The San Diego Padres and the Arizona Diamondbacks close out their MLB series on Sunday at PETCO Park in San Diego.
It’s been an awful year for the San Diego Padres but they won on Saturday for their second win a row. Justin Upton hit a home run, Yangervis Solarte had three hits, and Matt Kemp and Yonder Alonso were among those Padres with two hits as San Diego scored seven runs on 15 hits. Starting pitcher Andrew Cashner allowed eight hits and two runs while striking out six over 7.0 innings to get the win and go to 3-9 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Padres start Oridisamer Despaigne who has allowed 79 hits and 39 earned runs while striking out 37 over 72.2 innings for a 3-5 record and a 4.83 ERA.

The Arizona Diamondbacks lost for the third time in a row as they lost on Saturday in San Diego. David Peralta, Yosmany Tomas, and Jacob Lamb each had two hits as the Diamondbacks scored two runs on eight hits. Starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson has allowed 10 hits and seven runs while striking out over eight over 5.1 innings to take the loss and fall to 5-5 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Diamondbacks start Chase Anderson who has allowed 82 hits and 33 earned runs while striking out 54 over 84 innings for a 3-2 record and a 3.54 ERA.
San Diego is 5-9 at home against a right-handed starter, 37-16 as a home favorite, and 4-0 in Despaigne’s last four starts as a favorite. Arizona is 1-5 in their last six road games, 1-10 in their last 11 games after losing the first two games of a series, and 2-10 in Anderson’s last 12 road starts.
Anderson was terrible last time out but I expect him to bounce back here and the D-backs to bounce back from the first two games and salvage a win here.
