The Arizona Diamondbacks don’t Have a day off after their slugfest against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the weekend.
They jump right into a series from the San Diego Padres in town. The Diamondbacks attracted an win against the Dodgers to maintain their postseason chances. It was much needed success against a team that they were underdogs in for every game. They were not able to notch the sweep Sunday but an impressive series.
Acquiring the Dodgers is currently definitely going to be an impossible chore, but they are alive for a wildcard. The Nationals and Cubs are beginning to put some separation between themselves and the rest of the pack. It is imperative the Diamondbacks keep playing baseball September. They have to worry about that the Mets, Brewers, and Phillies, therefore it is not likely to be simple.
The Padres are trusting everything comes in the second season with the club of Manny Machado. The first was a float without a visit to the postseason. And yes, they’re in the season’s last month going from the film. Their trip closed out to San Francisco with an 8-4 win on Sunday. That puts them two games behind the Cubs before they are statistically out for the final postseason spot, which signifies only a matter of time.
Ty France needed a major day for the Padres as he connected for two balls. It was the very first multi-homer game of France’s livelihood. There is a Whole Lot of talent. If Machado plays up to his contract, then the Padres will probably likely be a sleeper in 2019.
A good deal of people had them sleeper team in 2018, but that they failed in that respect, everybody will forget about them. Beefing up their turning would be a good starting point to becoming a better team next season. Rookie Cal Quantrill has got a spot in the rotation next season. He shown sufficient and has room to grow. Quantrill gets the nod against Mike Leake within this one. Head below for our free Padres vs. Diamondbacks select.

Besides that outing, he has been locked inside this season, although cal Quantrill is coming off his worst start of the calendar year. Going into his latest start against the Dodgers, Quantrill owned a 3.32 ERA. That obtained skewed all of the way around 3.99 after letting 8 earned runs in 4 innings.
Nevertheless , it was the game which Quantrill allowed more than 3 runs since June 14th from the Rockies, where most pitchers struggle which was Coors Field. Quantrill travelled 12 right appearances, without allowing more than 3 runs including from the bullpen. In 10 out of 12 matches, he let less or 2 runs, so it appears like his effort from the Dodgers was still an outlier.
Heading to his matchup from the Dodgers, Quantrill permitted or 2 runs in eight of his previous nine appearances. He’s been strong on the road, with a 3.75 ERA and also 1.03 WHIP at 36 innings of work. His opponent Mike Leake, in this one, has fought with his new team. The D-backs acquired Leake and that he hasn’t been as sharp. Leake published a 4.27 ERA in Seattle and includes a 6.59 ERA in five starts with the Diamondbacks.
Leake has allowed 6 runs against Padres’ hitters at 35 at-bats. Four players in the Padres’ lineup have struck .333 or even better against Leake. I am not feeling so hot about jumping on Leake at -130, although it is not a huge sample size. That is a little pricey for me personally and is based mostly upon what the Diamondbacks failed against the Dodgers. After leaving all of it out there on the weekend they may be in for a letdown. Quantrill seems like worth that is adequate here in the desert as an underdog.
