The St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres meet Saturday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The St. Louis Cardinals could use a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Cardinals have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last nine games. The St. Louis Cardinals have lost four of their last five games when scoring three or less runs. Paul DeJong leads the Cardinals with 79 hits and 36 RBI while Marcell Ozuna and Paul Goldschmidt have combined for 151 hits and 93 RBI. Dakota Hudson gets the ball, and he is 6-3 with a 3.36 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. This will be Hudson’s first career game against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. The San Diego Padres have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 88 hits and 55 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 143 hits and 88 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 3.18 ERA and 73 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s second career game against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 5-2 in their last 7 road games, 4-0 in Hudsons last 4 road starts and 7-0 in Hudsons last 7 starts. The Padres are 5-2 in their last 7 home games, 7-21 in their last 28 Saturday games and 0-4 in Paddacks last 4 starts. The Cardinals are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in San Diego and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 7-3-1 in Paddacks last 11 starts overall. The under is 6-1 in Hudsons last 7 starts overall.
The St. Louis Cardinals have gone ice cold offensively and the Padres seem to be putting things together finally. However, we'r getting plus money with a pitcher in Hudson who has allowed six runs in his last 26.1 innings, and the Cardinals have won his last seven starts overall. Paddack has given up 19 hits and 10 earned runs in his last 14.1 innings and he's had major issues lately keeping the ball in the park. Paddack has been great at home and the Padres are playing better ball as a team lately, but Hudson and plus money is tough to turn down based on his recent performances.
