Godley guides D-backs to win

Arizona starting pitcher Zack Godley was stellar Friday night as he gave up one earned run on four hits with seven strikeouts and a walk over six innings to pick up the win. Brad Boxberger threw a perfect ninth for his 21st save. Nick Ahmed was 2-for-4 with a double and two runs to lead the Diamondbacks offense, while Paul Goldschmidt also finished 2-for-4 with a double. Steven Souza Jr. was 1-for-4 with two RBIs.

Hedges doubles in loss

The Padres offense went silent yesterday as they were held to only five hits. The lone extra-base hit went to catcher Austin Hedges as he was 1-for-2 with a double. Pitcher Joey Lucchesi helped his own cause as he was 1-for-2 and scored the lone run, driven in by second baseman Carlos Asuaje.

Tyson Ross (5-6, 3.78 ERA) will be on the mound today for San Diego, while Arizona turns to Robbie Ray (3-1, 4.89).

MLB Betting Trends

San Diego

The Padres are 15-12 in road games after a loss this season. Ross is 10-3 after a loss this season.

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 36-25 in night games this season. Arizona is 67-48 against NL West opponents the last two seasons.

Prediction:

Arizona's offense has been a bit stagnant lately, but it still a strong offense that can pick it up in any given moment. Ross has slowed down as of late and look for Arizona to take advantage of a pitcher it is familiar with. Ray has struggled with big innings this season when healthy, but has gotten good run support in most starts. Look for that to continue today and bet the over.
