|Date & Time||Sunday April 14, 2019, 4:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: San Diego Padres +120 / Arizona Diamondbacks -141 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Sunday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The San Diego Padres look for another victory after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 14 runs in their last three games and The San Diego Padres have won seven straight games when scoring three or more runs. Wil Myers leads the Padres with 17 hits and seven RBI while Manny Machado and Manuel Margot have combined for 28 hits and 13 RBI. Eric Lauer gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.76 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Lauer is 1-1 with a 2.76 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Diamondbacks have allowed 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost six of their last 10 games when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 24 hits and seven RBI while Adam Jones and Nick Ahmed have combined for 38 hits and 16 RBI. Zack Greinke gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 7.16 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Greinke is 12-2 with a 2.29 ERA and 150 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 32-65 in their last 97 Sunday games, 4-1 in Lauer's last 5 road starts and 4-1 in Lauer's last 5 starts. The Diamondbacks are 2-5 in their last 7 vs. National League West, 0-4 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series and 0-7 in their last 7 Sunday games. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in Greinke's last 6 starts vs. Padres and the Padres are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona. The over is 6-0 in Greinke's last 6 starts overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Lauer's last 5 road starts.
Lauer has gotten rocked in his last two starts, allowing nine runs and 13 hits in his last 11 innings, which includes a game against Arizona less than two weeks ago. Greinke has looked awful in his first three starts, allowing 13 earned runs and six homers in 16.1 innings. However, Greinke has owned the Padres over the course of his career. Still, I'm not trying to get behind either of these pitchers, so I'll side with the over between these clubs.
