San Diego Padres vs Arizona Diamondbacks (By: Mulder)
LHP Strahm will start for the Pads and he is 1-3 with a 3.07 ERA. He pitched a bit worse than that: 7.98 K/9, 35.4 GB%.
At home he is 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA and even a worse 4.44 FIP.
He pitched 7.2 innings against the Diamondbacks this season and posted a 5.87 ERA> 2.09 WHIP.
Not so strange as the D-Backs are hitting lefties really well with an excellent .357 wOBA ( 3rd in advanced stats ).
-Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last 7 road games vs. a left-handed starter.
Arizona will start with their ACE Greinke on the mound. The Rightie is 6-1 with a 2.78 ERA> 8.63 K/9.
He is in an incredible form as he is 3-0 with a 1.27 ERA> 0.51 BB/9 (!), 0.00 HR/9 (!).
Diamondbacks are 4-0 in Greinkes last 4 starts vs. Padres ( 2.30 ERA in his career against the Pads ).
Wanna avoid that Arizona bullpen, hence backing the D-Backs for the first 5 innings.
