Analysis
I'm playing SD on the run-line (+1.5 runs) These teams are currently going in opposite directions and the Giants won big yesterday. However, despite all the losing, the Padres are still alive in the Wild Card race. That said, they desperately need to go on a run. After getting pounded yesterday, I expect a much better effort today. True, Arrieta has seen better days. He was relatively solid in his last start though and he knows his team desperately needs him tonight. He held high-scoring Houston to three runs, on only three hits and one walk. Desclafani has only gone more than five innings in one of his past seven starts. In fact, over that 7-game span, he's gone a total of 26 2/3 innings. That's less than four innings per start. The Padres are 8-6 their last 14, after losing their previous three or more games. Expect the bats to come alive and for them to bounce back with at least the "run-line cover."
