San Diego Padres vs Texas Rangers. MLB’s pick for the 1st game will go to the San Diego Padres -122. Looking at the starting pitchers, Davies is doing a better job than Jordan Lyles. San Diego is not doing so well as a team in their last few games, but it is time they snap their losing streak, as they have a chance if Davies will step up for them and control whatever damage Texas will dish out. The Friars are due for a win as they know the urgency of that matter, since they are playing a shortened season. San Diego will take this round to a predicted score of 6-5.
