The Athletics return to action for the first time since Sunday when a member of the club tested positive for COVID.
On the other side, the Padres are coming off a split series with the Angels over the week after taking the first game on Wednesday they lost the follow up on Thursday.
San Diego Padres
San Diego comes into the series 23-16 six games behind the Dodgers for first place in the NL West, but the Friars are still in a position to make the playoffs with the expansion to the playoff format.
Fernando Tatis Jr. still leads the league with 13 home runs and 34 RBI’s even though he has cooled down over the past week. As a team, the Padres score 5.69 runs per game which is ranked 1st among all MLB teams.
Zach Davies is having a career year looking for his sixth win of the season in his eighth start. Davies is 5-2 with a 2.52 ERA in 41.1 innings worth of work.
There might be little rust on the A’s tires as they are coming off a five-day rest due to health concerns with the team. Oakland’s division lead has shrunk to just two games as the Astros have been winning a lot over the last week.
The duo of Matt Olson and Matt Chapman are the head of the A’s offense this season as they are tied for the club lead in home runs with 10 apiece. Everyone on the team not named Matt Chapman or Matt Olson has 21 home runs all together so it shows the Matt’s are a pivotal part of the offense. The Athletics are averaging 4.82 runs per game which is ranked 13th in the league.
Oakland will turn to rookie Jesus Luzardo for the start on Friday. Luzardo is 2-1 with a 3.51 ERA in 33.2 innings of work.
Free San Diego Padres vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
The Padres offense seems to turtle up when they are on the road that’s why I’m going with the Athletics in this one. San Diego is 11-10 away compared to their 12-6 record at home, while Oakland is also one of the best home teams in baseball as well with a 13-4 record at home. Jesus Luzardo has been one of the most impressive rookies this season he and Louis Robert are my top two candidates for AL rookie of the year.
