Preview: Two teams at the top of their divisions will square off for the first of three games at Petco Park. The Cincinnati Reds come into the series 7.5 games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals for the central division lead. Cincinnati has just nine games left in the season. Joey Votto leads the team with a .323 batting average, along with 35 homeruns and 106 runs batted in. The Reds are batting .271 as a team, which ranks fourth in all of baseball. Cincinnati has also hit 175 homeruns, which also is fourth best in baseball. The Reds are sending Travis Wood to the mound to make his 16th start of the season. The 23 year old from Little Rock is 5-4 this season with a 3.43 earned run average. John Garland will make the start for the Padres. The veteran pitcher is 14-12 with a 3.55 earned run average. The 30 year old from California lost his last start at St. Louis, allowing 5 hits and 4 runs in 7 innings.

San Diego heads into late Thursday night tied with the San Francisco Giants atop the National League West. Colorado is in third place, trailing by just 3 games. Adrian Gonzalez has been the main cog offensively for the Padres, batting .306, while hitting 29 homeruns, and is just 3 RBI’s short of 100. San Diego has struggled to string together base hits, batting .249 as a team, which ranks 25th in all of baseball.

My Betting Picks: San Diego is the team that needs wins more than San Diego, and they do. Padres win 3-2.
