Notes On The Arizona Diamondbacks
After a devastating 11-1 defeat to the Minnesota Twins, the Arizona Diamondbacks bounced back with a 7-1 victory to take three games. The D’backs are 32-36 through 55 games, but we can squarely say that they have underperformed thus far in the campaign.
Merrill Kelly (6-4) was excellent in his outing against Minnesota, going 7.0 innings while allowing one run on five hits with five strikeouts and no walks.Jordan Luplow hit a solo shot in his second at-bat, extending the Roadrunners’ scoreless drought to 12 innings. Daulton Varsho and Walker had an RBI double for Flagstaff (0-2).
Zach Davies (2-3) is looking for his first win in seven starts as he faces the Padres on Monday. The 29-year-old right-hander is getting his 14th start of the year and he currently owns a 3.78 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 57/22 K/BB ratio over. He has a 5.39 ERA in 17 starts with the Padres this year, despite pitching effectively in five of them. Davies faced San Diego once during the season and gave up two runs on six hits with a 3.60 ERA in 5.0 innings.

Notes On The San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres were beaten for the second time this season, losing all three games on the road against the Colorado Rockies. The Padres are 8.5 games behind the first-place Dodgers (who have a one game lead), but they’re still 3rd in the National League with a 41-27 record. With two more home series against Arizona and Philadelphia, San Diego hopes to boost its win total.
The San Diedgo Padres took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Luke Voit drove in the game’s first run with a solo homer, but that was all they scored until the eighth. However, it was too late, as they fell apart and were beaten 8-3.After allowing four runs on five hits with five strikeouts and four walks in 4.2 innings, Clayton Kershaw fell to a 0-4 record for the Dodgers.
Yu Darvish pitched very well in his last two starts. He allowed only one run over 15 innings. This resulted in two wins for him.The 29-year-old righty is on the verge of his 13th start of the season, which will be his first since June 18. Darvish has a 3.35 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 61/15 K/BB ratio in 75.1 innings this year while awaiting his 13th outing.

Diamondbacks Vs Padres Prediction And Pick: San Diego Padres-1.5
Following a disappointing set at Coors Field, the Padres will be highly driven to regain their winning ways, and I’m going with them to bounce back on Monday. Since Darvish is currently on a roll, he will almost certainly throw for more than six innings if he maintains his current level of domination.
Zach Davies wasn’t terrible in his last start against the Padres, and he hasn’t given up a run in 2 of his previous 3starts. However, this matchup is not in Zach’s favor, and I expect the Dodgers to get him early on. The Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson, who have combined for five hits and 15 total bases against Davies, will cause a lot of trouble for the Dbacks’ starter.
In the last five starts, Yu Darvish has not had more than seven runs. The total for this game is set at 7.5. I think that the game will be Under because Arizona will not be able to score a lot against him and he is playing well right now.
Despite the fact that I’m predicting the Padres to reach multiple runs in the first five or six innings, I don’t anticipate a high-scoring game. This season, three of four H2H matchups have gone Under.
