San Diego vs Oakland by Sors
Cashner, who will make his first career start versus Oakland, will face an opponent that scored four or more runs in five of its last six games, including 9 runs on 13 hits in the opening game of this series yesterday.
Oakland will give the ball to Scott Kazmir (3-4 with a 2.79 ERA), who was outstanding in his last start against the Rangers on June 11, allowing just 1 hit over eight scoreless innings in that game, with six strikeouts (7-0).
On the other hand, the left-hander went 1-3 with a 4.29 ERA in six starts away from home this season and posted a 4.45 ERA in his last five interleague starts.
Melvin Upton Jr. is 2-for-4, with a homer and a walks against him, Derek Norris is 2-for-4, with a walk, while Matt Kemp is 2-for-7 with a walk.
My bet is for more than six runs in the second game of this series between the Padres and the Oakland Athletics.
