National League Cy Young contender Brandon Webb looks for his 15th win of the season as the Arizona Diamondbacks take on the San Diego Padres in the second game of their important series at Petco Park. Webb is 14-8 on the season with an ERA of 2.63. He will be opposed by the Padres Justin Germano who is 6-7 and has an ERA of 4.24. SBG Global reports that early betting has the public taking the favored Diamonbacks on the Road.
Webb's 42-inning scoreless streak ended in his last start against Milwaukee but he still got the win, allowing two runs in seven innings. Webb will be pitching with an extra day of rest since the Padres had an off-day last week.
Germano pitched well in his last start on Thursday against the Mets but left with a no decision. He struck out two and walked two. 5Dimes Current Line: Diamondbacks -152, Total 7 Under (-115)
