San Diego Padres have been playing really well in the last week and for today’s game they are preparing a strategic defense to ensure a possible win over the Mariners. The team has shown a great defense so far this season. Padres coach, Bud Black, said the team this year has a better defensive thanks to hard work and it’s reflected in the field. The coach also referred to James Shields, the team’s pitcher that tonight will try to extend his series to 5 wins and 0 losses as a personal pitcher record.
Not everything is good for the San Diego Padres, on Tuesday, unfortunately one of their key players on offense was injured even more while doing batting practice before the game against the Seattle Mariners. The player is Wil Myers, which was already dragging a nuisance from the game against Arizona on Sunday. It’s the same injury he suffered last season, which caused a stress fracture and he had to play the entire season injured. Nevertheless Myers’ injury and the discomfort he has been dragging around haven’t stopped the Padres from carrying out 26 home runs in April-May and over 120 runs so far.
Seattle Mariners got their weapons loaded against James Shields, and the main weapon is Logan Morrison, which has been batting average 4 of 10 turns at bat, including a homerun against James Shields. Tuesday’s game was a slaughter, Seattle won by 11 runs and made ??6 homeruns in a single night. The Mariners are counting on Morrison but also with Zunino , who made two home runs last night against James Paxton. Nelson Cruz is another one that homered last night, Cruz is batting now .439 on average. The only weak point for Mariners tonight is their pitcher, Taijuan Walker with 1-3 and with an ERA of 8.13 runs per game.
Mariners manager, Lloyd McClendon, “We have a lot of batting power, but we must be careful with James Shields tonight” said early this wednesday.
Padres as visitors playing with teams that already defeat them the previous day are over 70% of probability to hit the Total Over on that particular game. We should take the Padres Total over 8 for no more than a half unit.
