Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 1.04 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s first career game against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win here to get back to a .500 record. The Diamondbacks have scored 13 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in 10 of their first 13 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks are 6-4 this season when scoring more than two runs.

The Padres are 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games, 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 6-20 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 8-17 in their last 25 vs. National League West. The Padres are 7-15 in the last 22 meetings in Arizona and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona. The over is 8-3-1 in Diamondbacks last 12 overall. The over is 11-5-1 in Padres last 17 road games.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have competed in every game this season and continue to tear the cover off the ball. Even last night when down big early, Arizona chipped away and had many chances to pull off the victory. Paddack has been solid in two starts this season, but he has just 8.2 career innings under his belt. There's value getting the Diamondbacks and the plus money at home when you consider just how consistent this offense has been, keeping them in games.
