San Diego 4 @ Cincinnati 5 | 07/01 | 11:10 PM UTC
San Diego +1.5
ANALYSIS: I'm a bit surprised the Padres are underdogs here. Pitcher Ryan Weathers (3-2, 2.47) had been quite good overall but was sent down because the Friars no longer had room in the rotation for him. They do now and he's back. Cincinnati goes with Luis Castillo. He's an ugly 3-10 with a 5.14 ERA but has been much better of late. Castillo allowed three runs over six in San Diego on June 20. I still think San Diego should be a slight favorite with a superior lineup, having won 11 of 12 and being 6-0 this year vs. Cincinnati. I'll happily take the Padres on the runline.
