Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The Padres cannot afford to lose to teams like Arizona. Every game matters for them at this point. I look for them to have a good showing on Sunday.
San Diego is the better team, but they have not shown when facing the D-Backs. I just have a hard time seeing Arizona winning 2 games in this series.
Snell was good in his last start against a tough Oakland lineup. I look for him to build off that in this game.
My play is San Diego on the run line.
