The Arizona Diamondbacks could also use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Diamondbacks have allowed 25 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in seven of their last eight games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have an ERA of 4.77 and have lost nine of their last 11 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jean Segura leads Arizona with 63 hits, Paul Goldschmidt has 30 RBI and Brandon Drury has eight home runs. Archie Bradley takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 7.84 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Bradley’s first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 17-35 in their last 52 Sunday games and 1-4 in Pomeranzs last 5 road starts. The Diamondbacks are 2-8 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 7-3 in Bradleys last 10 starts. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Arizona.
I don't trust either of these teams and either of these pitchers. However, we are getting a little bit of plus money with the home team, so you kind of have to like the value of the Arizona Diamondbacks given the value.
