The changes the San Diego Padres made in 2015 haven’t had the desired result so we’ll see if more are coming. The slumping Padres have dropped eight of eleven following a 5-1 loss to the rival Dodgers. Starter Andrew Cashner fell to 5-14 with a pair of runs allowed on five hits and four free passes through six innings of work. The Padres managed just six hits and walked four times with Jedd Gyorko supplying the scoring with his 13th long ball of the season. A surging Ian Kennedy draws the start in game one of the series with the Rockies. Kennedy did not get a decision in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers last time out with two runs scored on five hits.

The over is 12-3-1 in San Diego’s last 16 home games and is 26-8-2 in their last 36 overall while going 26-8-2 in their last 36 on grass.
