The Padres have lost 12 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Justin Upton leads San Diego with 46 hits and 35 RBI while Derek Norris and Matt Kemp have combined for 49 RBI. The San Diego Padres have lost four of their last six road games. Tyson Ross gets the ball, and he’s 2-4 with a 3.93 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season.

The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Angels have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Angels have won four of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Mike Trout leads Los Angeles with 49 hits and 25 RBI while David Freese and Kole Calhoun have combined for 49 RBI. The Los Angeles Angels have won five of their last seven home games. Jered Weaver takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 4.37 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Weaver is 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 2-5 in their last 7 interleague road games and 2-5 in Ross' last 7 starts. The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games as a favorite and 2-6 in their last 8 vs. National League West. The Padres are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Angels have been playing solid ball lately on their home field, and the Padres are in a slump. I like the home team for the cheap price with Weaver on the hill.
