Pitching Probables

Monday: RHP Zack Greinke (1-2, 3.28 ERA) vs. RHP Jhoulys Chacin (2-2, 4.70 ERA)

Tuesday: LHP Patrick Corbin (1-3, 3.27 ERA) vs. LHP Clayton Richard (2-2, 3.04 ERA)

Wednesday: RHP Taijuan Walker (2-1, 4.57 ERA) vs. RHP Trevor Cahill (1-2, 3.44 ERA)

Thursday: LHP Robbie Ray (2-0, 3.42 ERA) vs. RHP Jered Weaver (0-1, 3.91 ERA)

Greinke faced the Padres in his last start at Petco. The 33-year-old tossed his 16th career complete game but took the loss. Chacin was Greinke’s opponent that night. The former Diamondback one-upped Arizona’s ace with eight shutout innings.

In 17 career starts against the Padres, Greinke is 8-2. Greinke has limited the Padres to 2 runs or fewer in 16 of them. Among pitchers with a minimum of ten-career starts, Greinke’s 1.96 ERA is the fifth lowest all-time versus San Diego.

The Diamondbacks ace is 3-2 with a 2.64 ERA in his last eight starts at Chase Field. Greinke struggled at home in the early going of 2016. However, since April 30 he has allowed 3 runs or fewer in 9 of 12 home outings.

Patrick Corbin has yielded 3 runs or fewer in each of his four starts. The left-hander lost his last start in San Diego. He lasted six innings and gave up three runs.

Corbin owns a 3-4 record with a 3.55 ERA in 7 career starts against the Friars. Corbin has always pitched better at Chase Field (15-19, 3.62 ERA). Myers is a .400 career hitter off Corbin with 1 HR.

Taijuan Walker is 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA in two career starts versus San Diego. Eric Aybar is hitting .429 in 7-career at-bats off the Diamondbacks’ right-hander.

Robbie Ray struggled in his last start. He surrendered five runs to the Dodgers but received 12 runs off support. Ray will look to reduce the amount of 3-2 counts.
