Padres Offense Showing Life

The Padres’ offense in the last game only scored a run, but in the previous two games against the Boston Red Sox, they scored 20 runs total. In the last game, though, the offense wasn’t good enough, and they are going to need the offense to be better. The Padres are averaging 4.68 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.29 runs per game. The offense is ranked 10th, while the pitching is ranked 14th. Jake Cronenworth has hit 12 home runs and driven in 53 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Padres will be Dylan Cease, who sits with a 7-6 record and an ERA of 3.84. In his last start against the Washington Nationals, he went seven innings, giving up one hit and zero runs. 

Rangers Dominated Last Game

The Rangers faced off against the Baltimore Orioles in the last game, and they were able to secure the 11-2 victory. Wyatt Langford hit a home run and drove in four RBIs. The Rangers are averaging 4.25 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.37 runs per game. The offense is ranked 17th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 17th. Adolis Garcia has hit 16 home runs and driven in 44 RBis so far this season. Getting the start for the Rangers will be Nathan Eovaldi who sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 3.35. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, he went seven innings, giving up nine hits and five runs. 

Texas Rangers vs San Diego Padres Prediction

The Padres are going to find success here. Dylan Cease sits with an ERA of 3.84 and in his last start he gave up zero runs. The Rangers are averaging 4.25 runs per game, and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. The Padres might not tee off on Nathan Eovaldi here, but he’s going to score at least four runs here, and that will be the difference as the Padres are going to get the job done here.
