Padres win with three-run eighth

Trailing 2-0 in the top of the eighth inning Tuesday night, San Diego scored three runs in that frame and prevailed 3-2. Travis Jankowski was 1-for-4 with a walk and a run at the top of the order. Wil Myers finished 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI. Hunter Renfroe was 1-for-3 with a double, a run and an RBI. Freddy Galvis ended the night 2-for-4. Matt Strahm picked up the win in relief as he allowed one hit while striking out two in an inning of work.

Odor homers in loss

Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has struggled all season, but on Tuesday he hit a solo home run in four at-bats to help lead the charge for his team's offense. Robinson Chirinos also hit a solo homer to account for the other run. Nomar Mazara finshed the night 3-for-5 with a trio of singles. Jake Diekman took the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits plus a walk in two-thirds of an inning.

Clayton Richard (7-6, 4.23 ERA) will take the will for the Padres today, while the Rangers counter with Mike Minor (5-4, 5.06).

MLB Betting Trends

San Diego

The Padres are 2-8 in their last 10 games. The under is 16-5 in the last 21 San Diego road games.


The Rangers are 8-2 in their last 10 games. Texas is 2-6 in its last eight games following a loss.


Neither of these pitchers are much to write home about and give good reason to not pay much attention at all to a pitcher's win-loss record as neither should probably be above .500. It also speaks to luck for both as they have positive records despite being on mediocre teams. Richard has a high ground ball rate and can frustrate an offense when he is down in the zone. Minor should be in the bullpen where he excelled last year, although he has been improved his last three starts. I like San Diego to take today's finale as I don't trust Minor to continue pitching well.
