The Diamondbacks are coming off a 3-game sweep of the New York Mets where they totaled 17 runs in the 3 games. They are tied with the L.A. Dodgers in 2nd place in the NL West 2 games back of the surprising Colorado Rockies.
The Padres have lost 3 in a row and they are in the basement of the NL West 11.5 games out of first place. In losing three in a row their pitching was not bad, but they only totaled 5 runs.
In their last games the Diamondbacks beat the New York Mets 5-4 and the Padres lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2.
This season the Diamondbacks are balanced to say the least ranking 6th in the Majors in both runs scored and team ERA.
In their win over the Mets in their last game the Diamondbacks had fewer hits (11-8) and Chris Herrmann was the hero hitting a walk-off HR in the bottom of the 11th inning.
Taijuan Walker (3-3 3.91 ERA) gets the start in the first game of this series and in his last start he went 6 innings giving up three earned runs in a 4-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
After winning 4 in a row with him on the hill the D-Backs have lost his last 2 starts, but he was not that bad giving up 4 earned runs, but Arizona only totaled 5 runs.
This is Walker’s first start of the season facing the Padres and in three career starts against them he is 2-1 with a solid ERA of 1.80.
Walker only has one career start in San Diego and it was back in 2015 while a member of the Seattle Mariners where he only gave up one run in 6 innings.
The Diamondbacks are 8-3 in their last 11 games against the Padres.
This season the Diamondbacks are 6-10 on the road.
San Diego Padres
This season the Padres only rank 28th in the Majors in runs scored and 25th in team ERA.
In their loss to the Brewers in their last game the Padres offense struggled again only scoring two runs on 5 hits.
Jared Weaver (0-4 6.05 ERA) had his best start of the season in his last one only giving up one run in 6 innings, but the bullpen fell apart in a 9-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Not only is Weaver 0-4, but the Padres have lost all 8 of his starts this season.
In his career Weaver has 3 starts against the Diamondbacks and is 1-2 with an ERA of 5.49.
Before Waver’s last start he had given up 17 runs in his previous 2 outings.
The Padres have won 5 of their last 7 home games against the Diamondbacks.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
I have to take the Over in this game mainly because Weaver is on the hill and while coming off a solid last start he will get tagged up in this game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Number
The Padres have really struggled to score runs this season, especially lately, and with Weaver on the hill that spells trouble. Arizona will take the first game of this series and hand the Padres their 4th straight loss.
