San Diego Padres vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, another series that will be difficult for the Padres, have already lost the previous series 0-3 against the Angels, and have not been able more than one series between July and August at home. The Diamondbacks arrive with many more victories on the road, this series could become another victory for visitors.
Arizona Diamondbacks: Our record keeps growing.
The Diamondbacks on the road have a record of 34 wins and 26 losses, with 56.7% effectiveness, a record that has improved a lot between June and August, as the Diamondbacks won only two games on the road during May. Between July and August the Diamondbacks have taken 12 wins and 6 losses, it’s a good record, they also won series against Braves, tied with the Cubs and swept the Padres 0-3.
Clay Buchholz, a veteran of 12 years as a professional will be responsible for opening this series as visitors. 5 wins and only 2 losses for Clay, he’s pitching for .714 with 2.67 ERA and 1,141, everyone knows him from his best years with the Red Sox when he threw 12-1 in 2013. The Diamondbacks are scoring an average of 4.35 runs with 7.83 hits per game.
San Diego Parents: We want revenge.
The Padres already know what it is to lose to the Diamondbacks and so less than a month ago they received the Diamondbacks at home, lost all three games and were swept away by a very superior visiting team in all aspects. The only positive thing the Padres have in August is to have won the series against the Phillies 2-1, but before this series they were also swept by the Angels.
Jacob Nix will have his second home game with the Padres tonight, his first year as a pro, only 22 years old and so far he has only one victory, the first game against the Phillies was dominated by Nix to give the team victory for 2 -0. The Padres at home have a poor average of only 3.84 runs per game and only 7.68 hits.
