Pitching Matchup

PITCHING MATCHUP: Diamondbacks RH Zack Greinke (12-8, 3.00 ERA) vs. Padres RH Brett Kennedy (0-2, 11.00)

After winning seven straight decisions, Greinke has lost three consecutive starts - including an outing at Texas on Monday in which he yielded four runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings.  He is 11-2 with two complete games and a 2.10 ERA in 21 career starts against the Padres.

Kennedy makes a third attempt at his initial major-league victory after surrendering 11 runs and 20 hits - four homers - over nine innings in his first two starts.

Hot Trends

Arizona has won five of the last six meetings vs. San Diego.

Today's Pick

A bit of a steep price but we haven't offered many of these as picks, plus we've done well with a few good dogs over the season so we are on Arizona -197 with Greinke in desperation mode and the Padres providing the perfect remedy.  There is an argument to be had for the UNDER here but we're not willing to go that route.
