Joe D's MLB NL Game of the Week
Arizona vs. San Diego,
04/11/2012 18:35 EDT,
Score: 1 - 2
Money Line: +112 Arizona
Today's winner is Arizona over San Diego. This is my NL Game of the Week.
Arizona is already off to a 4-0 start, averaging 5.3 RPG. The D-Back's have owned the Padres, taking 11 of their L15 meetings. San Diego is struggling with two starters sidelined with early season injuries. Today, Cory Luebke gets the start. The LH is 0-3 when starting against Arizona in his career. He faces a 'Zona lineup that is crushing the ball from top to bottom. Their offense has tallied 5 HRs and 7 SBs thus far. Joe Saunders takes the mound today. The LH was 3-1 with a 1.47 ERA in 30.2 IP vs. the Padres a season ago. The Diamondbacks are 4-1 in Saunders L5 starts vs. the Padres, 4-1 their L5 games played as a 'dog, and 38-18 their L56 games played overall. The Padres are 0-7 in Luebke's L7 starts vs. teams with a winning record, 8-21 their L29 games played vs. LH starters, and 15-38 their L53 games played vs. the NL West. Take Arizona. Thank you.
