Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres 6/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Arizona Diamondbacks will go against the San Diego Padres in MLB action in Petco Park, CA, on Monday, June 20, 2022, at 9:40 PM ET.

 

Arizona enters this series in fourth place in the NL West, having struggled to gain ground against the division’s top clubs. Over the previous two weeks, the squad essentially played.500 ball, putting them closer to last-place Colorado than third-place San Francisco.

 

The Diamondbacks’ bats came alive in a relatively easy victory against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday in the series finale. Buddy Kennedy’s home slam in the sixth inning put the game out of reach. Merrill Kennedy, who started the game, was effective and earned his sixth victory of the season.

 

Zach Davies will be on the hill. Davies, a right-handed pitcher, had four quality starts in 13 appearances this year. In 69 innings, he’s given up 61 hits while striking out 7.4 batters per nine innings. Davies did not claim a game since 5/13, and in his previous six starts, he’s 0-2 with four no-decisions.

 

  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are 2-6 SU in their last 8 matches against San Diego. 
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Arizona’s last 9 matches on the road. 
  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are 3-8 SU in their last 11 matches on the road against San Diego.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres Predictions 6/20/2022

 

The Padres continue to win despite a strong pitching staff and timely hitting from a variety of sources. Following two straight defeats to the last-place Rockies in the first two matches of the three-game series, the Padres fell just a half-game behind the first-place Dodgers

 

. On Sunday, starting Blake Snell and the Padres bullpen unraveled in the fifth inning, turning a close game into a one-sided affair for the Rockies, completing a stunning sweep of the Padres.

 

The most important piece of news of the day, though, was the departure of all-star third baseman Manny Machado. After severely twisting his ankle while running out a grounder, Machado had to be carried off the field. Machado is expected to be out for many weeks for the Padres, who are already shorthanded.

 

Yu Darvish will take the mound on Monday. Darvish gradually moved away from being a pure power pitcher who relied solely on high velocity and swings and misses.

 

At 35, Darvish evolved into a more finesse pitcher, yet he remains just as successful. With 9 out of 12 starts, he is second on the squad in quality starts.

 

This season, he has a career-low K rate of 20%, down from a league-leading 31.7 percent in 2016. Despite the decreased strikeout percentage, Darvish kept batters guessing this season, with only 29% of his pitches reaching the sweet spot, compared to 35% last year.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of San Diego’s last 6 matches against Arizona. 
  • The Padres are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches at home. 
  • San Diego is 8-3 SU in their last 11 matches at home against Arizona.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. This season, Darvish evolved into a pitcher who is more efficient at deceiving batters than trying to dominate them.

 

Darvish was able to stay longer into games by keeping batters off balance. This resulted in fewer hard-hit balls. While both starters are in the game, expect a close duel, with each pitcher capable of going to or through the seventh inning.

 

With a stronger bullpen, the Padres will have the upper hand once they arrive. In Arizona earlier this year, the Padres took three of four matches against the Diamondbacks. In a low-scoring, tight game, the Padres will prevail. The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of 7-2.
