The Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres meet Monday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The Orioles have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Baltimore Orioles have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs.

The Baltimore Orioles didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The San Diego Padres need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The San Diego Padres have lost five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 115 hits and 64 RBI while Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. have combined for 197 hits and 109 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 6-5 with a 2.84 ERA and 99 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 8-21 in their last 29 Monday games, 41-108 in their last 149 road games and 2-7 in their last 9 interleague road games. The Padres are 8-3 in their last 11 interleague games, 5-2 in their last 7 interleague home games and 1-8 in their last 9 home games. The Orioles are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in San Diego and the over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Padres last 5 home games. The over is 3-1-2 in Orioles last 6 road games.
The Baltimore Orioles have been able to win some games in the second half of the season, but I'm still not buying this team as a club I'm making a habit of backing. Paddack seems to be back on track, allowing nine hits and four runs in his last 18.1 innings, and he has a 2.36 ERA and .166 allowed batting average with 51 strikeouts in 42 innings at home. The San Diego Padres should be able to get a rare victory in this contest based on the way Paddack has looked lately and at home overall this season.
