8* San Diego (9:10 ET): The Padres were one of the nice early season surprises, but have hit the skids in recent days, dropping two in a row. Still, they are among the highest scoring teams in all of baseball, scoring two more runs than the Dodgers in the same number of games (13). They had yday off to recoup from a tough 7-6 loss to the Dodgers where the game ended with a runner thrown out at the plate. Now they face an Arizona team they’ve already taken three of four from earlier in the year and I believe a turnaround is imminent.

Arizona, though off B2B wins, has struggled in the early going. They are 5-8 and their -23 run differential is the National League’s worst. It’s tough to like them here with Luke Weaver starting as Weaver has a 14.73 ERA and 2.592 WHIP after two outings. He allowed six runs in both, one of which was against the Padres. So San Diego’s early season offensive prowess should definitely continue tonight.

The D’backs are averaging just 2.8 rpg on the road so far plus they played yesterday. Not having the off-day like San Diego is a definite disadvantage coming into this series. Zach Davies will start here for the Padres in what was originally going to be Joey Lucchesi’s spot. But Lucchesi had struggled this year and Davies looks to be an upgrade. Davies has allowed just nine hits in 10 IP so far with one walk. 8* San Diego
