In 17.1 career innings versus the Pirates, Lugo gave up 14 runs, 10 of which were earned.


Despite having a poor season, San Diego was successful. Given the number of teams ahead of them, it was tough to close the gap in the Wildcard picture.


Despite winning two straight series, they are still six games behind. The Padres are 4-6 in their previous 10 meetings. Over the weekend, they won two out of three games in Detroit while scoring 20 runs. 


Top-of-the-order hitter Fernando Tatis Jr. continues to reach base, putting up a .304 average and 0.822 OPS this month. The 24-year-old superstar has 17 home runs, 50 RBIs, and a respectable 0.843 OPS this season.

Johan Oviedo, a starter for the Pirates, is still having trouble, as seen by his dismal 7.54 ERA for the month. Oviedo especially struggles on the road, as he has a poor 5.26 ERA in 10 starts.


Seth Lugo, the Padres’ starter, showed excellent form. The seasoned right-hander’s previous three starts, including a stellar game against the Angels, saw him allow two runs or fewer.


Given that nine of the Padres’ previous 10 victories were by two runs or more, bet on the run line. The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
