Money Line: -147 San Diego
8* San Diego (9:40 ET): The Padres are far from my favorite side in MLB right now, but they always seem like a better bet when Chris Paddack takes the mound. Despite coming off B2B less than steller showings, the rookie Paddack has clearly emerged as the staff ace for San Diego w/ a 2.97 ERA and 0.89 WHIP. His TSR is 7-4, but curiously his own record is just 4-4 and he obviously deserves better. The two teams he recently faced were the Phillies and Yankees, both of whom field strong lineups. It'll be a drop in class tonight facing San Francisco, who has scored the third fewest runs in all of MLB.
Paddack has faced the Giants once before. It was actually his big league debut, back on March 31st. He limited them to one run over five innings. Paddack's first nine starts saw him give up no more than 3 ER, but in the last two he's given up 10 total. Again, the teams Paddack hasn't been as successful against this year are all in first place. When not facing a current division leader, his team start record is 7-1.
The Giants are in last place in the NL West and have the NL's worst run differential overall (-86). They've dropped four of five overall and not scored more than three runs in any of those games. They were shutout on Sunday and have scored just seven runs total in those L5 games. Tyler Beede on the mound doesn't seem like it'll help as he has an 8.78 ERA and 1.95 WHIP after three starts. He just gave up six runs - in five innings - last week to the Mets. The Padres haven't exactly played well recently, but they are a better team than the Giants and have a significant pitching edge today. They are also 5-2 vs. SF this season. 8* San Diego
