The San Diego Padres look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Padres have scored 16 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The San Diego Padres offense has also woken up lately, and they’ve won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Wil Myers leads San Diego with 83 hits, Matt Kemp has 53 RBI and Melvin Upton Jr. has 11 home runs. Erik Johnson takes the hill, and he’s 0-5 with a 8.54 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be Johnson’s second career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 12-5 in their last 17 games following an off day and 0-6 in Jimenezs last 6 road starts. The Padres are 6-2 in their last 8 games following an off day and 2-10 in their last 12 interleague home games. The Orioles are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in San Diego.
Both of these teams are hot right now, but I have little confidence in either one of these shaky pitchers. So, this game would be a fade for me, but if I had to pick, I'd side with the Padres simply because they're at home.
