Willson Contreras went 1-for-3 and drove in the Cubs lone run in Sunday night's loss to the Dodgers. Contreras came through with a two-run RBI single off of Walker Buehler in the opening inning to plate Rafael Ortega. He also worked a walk in the ninth inning off of Robbie Erlin. For the season, the hard-hitting backstop is now slashing .256/.358/.463 to go along with three homers and nine RBI.

San Diego Padres DFS Spin

Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with two singles in Sunday's win over the Marlins. The two-out single that he hit in the bottom of the fifth inning had a 107.7 mph exit velocity, but unfortunately, he was left stranded at first base. The star third baseman is off to a scorching hot start to his 2022 campaign: .385/.460/.642 with seven home runs and six steals through 126 plate appearances.


The under is 6-1-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and has cashed in four of the last five meetings at Petco Park. The under is also 7-2-1 in the Cubs’ last 10 games during the first game of a series and is 4-1 in their last five road games versus a left-handed starter. On the other side, the under is 8-2 in the Padres’ last 10 games when listed as a home favorite and is 10-3 in their last 13 home games.
