San Diego Wins at Home

The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks aren’t playing well right now, but the Padres are playing slightly better, having won the first two games of the series. San Diego is 7-3 in its last 10 matchups with Arizona, though Arizona is outscoring the Padres by an average of 4.40 to 3.80 in those games.

The Padres are 2-1 in their last three meetings with the Diamondbacks while Arizona is outscoring San Diego by an average of 3.67 to 3.00 in those contests. I look for San Diego to pick up the win in game three of the series on Wednesday.
