Arizona Diamondbacks (87-62 SU, 82-67 RL, 66-75-8 O/U) vs San Diego Padres (65-83 SU, 79-69 RL, 75-65-8 O/U)

When: 10:10 PM EDT, Monday, September 18, 2017

Where: Petco Park in San Diego, California

Lines: Arizona -160/ San Diego +150

Total: 8.5

Major League Baseball action within the National League West this evening as the Arizona Diamondbacks square off with the San Diego Padres at Petco Park in San Diego, California in game one of their three-game series. Pitching Probables: The Diamondbacks will trot Patrick Corbin (13-12, 4.16 ERA) in this one and he will be opposed by Luis Perdomo (7-10, 4.61 ERA).

Greinke Has Another Strong Outing

The Arizona Diamondbacks will be in the postseason this year and they have a good chance of going far as they have a very good offense and one of the best pitching staffs in the league. That staff is led by Zack Greinke, who has had a very strong season so far and is off a dominating performance in San Francisco on Saturday. He won that game by a score of 2-0 and allowed two hits and one walk while striking out eight in 8.0 innings of work in the game. He is now 17-6 with a 2.87 ERA on the year and needs to be in consideration for the NL Cy Young Award. Getting the save in the game was Fernando Rodney, which was his 38th of the year, which puts him in a tie for 3rd in the league. The D-Backs have won their last four games in a row and have allowed just four total runs in those games. Arizona has gone 39-35 on the road and they have averaged 4.30 rpg and have allowed 3.80 rpg in those games. Patrick Corbin gets the nod for the Diamondbacks in this one and he has gone 14-12 with a 4.06 ERA in 30 starts on the year, including 2-1 with a 5.51 ERA in his last three starts and 5-8 with a 5.13 ERA 14 starts on the road, Corbin has gone 7-9 with a 4.91 ERA in 28 games (21 starts) during Sept/ Oct and he has gone 5-6 with a 4.29 ERA in 15 games (10 starts) against the Padres, including 2-3 with a 3.68 ERA in seven games (four starts) here at Petco Park.  

The Diamondbacks have been a solid offensive team thus far as they come in ranked 9th in the league in scoring, putting up 4.94 rpg, while also ranking 17th in hitting at .255 and 13th in homers with 197. On the mound they have been very strong in the early going as they come in ranked 3rd in the league in ERA at 3.55, while also ranking 5th in WHIP at 1.24.

Jordan Lyles Gets Roughed Up At Coors

Coors Field. Named after their brewery nearby and believe me there are many opposing pitchers that need a drink after a game in Coors and Jordan Lyles is one of them after losing to Colorado by a score of 16-0 on Saturday. Really the whole team needed a drink after that one as they did not play well in any aspect of the game. Lyles allowed seven ERs on eight hits and three walks in just 4.0 innings of work. He is now 1-3 with a 7.35 ERA on the year. The rest of the pen didn’t fare much better as they allowed nine ERs on nine hits and three walks in 4.0 innings of work. Prior to Sunday, the Padres had allowed 41 runs in their previous four games and it was the 2nd time in that stretch that they lost by a score of 16-0 as they were also beaten 16-0 at Minnesota. The Padres have gone 39-35 here at home for the year and they have averaged 3.68 rpg and have allowed 4.22 rpg. Toeing the rubber for the Padres will be Luis Perdomo and he has gone 7-10 with a 4.61 ERA in 26 starts on the year, including 1-2 with a 3.00 in his last three starts and 5-4 with a 4.67 ERA in 14 starts here at home. Perdomo has gone 15-19 with a 4.72 ERA in 46 career starts overall and he is 9-9 with a 5.36 ERA in 29 games (22 starts) here at Petco Park in his career, while against the Diamondbacks he has gone 3-4 with a 5.40 ERA in 10 games (six starts).

The Padres have not been a good offensive team so far as they come in ranked 30th in the league in scoring, putting up 3.77 rpg, while also ranking 30th in hitting at .232 and 24th in homers with 173. On the mound, they have been a bit below average so far as they come in ranked 20th in the league in ERA at 4.63, while also ranking 16th in WHIP at 1.37.

Trends

Arizona is:

  • 11-1 in their last 12 road games
  • 17-4 in their last 21 vs. National League West

San Diego is:

  • 20-42 in their last 62 vs. a team with a winning record
  • 1-6 in their last seven during game one of a series

The Padres are off a horrible road trip and they have been horrible on the road this year, while here at home they have not been that bad, while the Diamondbacks have been rather average on the road, Still, the Diamondbacks have a big edge on the mound and an even bigger edge at the plate and they will look to use those edges to walk away with a win in this one. Patrick Corbin has struggled some on the road this year, but he has a solid 3.68 ERA in this park and the Padres have hit lefties just .214 at home this year. Luis Perdomo has pitched well of late and he is 5-4 at home, but with a 4.67 ERA, plus he is 3-4 with a 5.40 ERA in his career against the Diamondbacks. Big win for Arizona here.  

Pick: Arizona -160
