The Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres face off on Tuesday at Chase Field in MLB action.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to finish the season strong but Monday didn’t help as they lost to the Padres. Jake Lamb had two hits and Paul Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock each had hits as the Diamondbacks scored three runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson allowed three hits and five runs while striking out one lasting just one inning to take the loss and fall to 9-9 for the season. For Tuesday’s game the Diamondbacks start Jhoulys Chacin who has allowed 11 hits and four runs while striking out 11 over 13.1 innings for a 0-1 record and a 2.70 ERA.

The San Diego Padres had a disappointing season but they are looking to get some momentum for next year as they beat the Diamondbacks on Monday. Wil Myers hit a home run and Yangervis Solarte, Jedd Gyorko, and Cory Spangenberg each had two hits as the Padres scored 10 runs on 11 hits. Starting pitcher James Shields allowed four hits and a run while striking out six over 7.0 innings to get the win and raise his record to 12-6. For Tuesday’s game the Padres start Tyson Ross who has allowed 158 hits and 64 earned runs while striking out 185 over 178 innings for a 10-10 record and a 3.24 ERA.
Arizona is 6-15 in their last 21 games, 4-11 in their last 15 home games, and 1-5 in their last six game two of a series. San Diego is 1-4 in their last five games, 1-4 in game two of a series, and 11-5 in Ross’ last six starts.
Both of these pitcher are pitching well and I don’t see a lot of runs so my free pick in this one is under the total that is set at 8.5.
