San Diego Padres vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Match Details

Fixture: Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Diego Padres

Date & Time: Monday, September 5, 6:40 p.m. EDT

Venue: Petco Park, San Diego, California

Blake Snell gets the call for the Padres in an afternoon National League West showdown. Snell recorded eight Ks in his last start in San Francisco, and he'll look to follow that outing up with another strong performance. He's now struck out eight or more hitters in four of his previous six.

The Diamondbacks strike out around league average, but they really struggle against high velocity. They also have a low OPS, so Snell should be able to last pretty deep into the game. Expect the Padres' lefty to rack up the punchouts at home on Monday.

MLB Player Prop #3: Wilmer Flores Over 1.5 Total Bases (+120)

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants Match Details

Fixture: San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers

Date & Time: Monday, September 5, 10:10 p.m. EDT

Venue: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California

Wilmer Flores is expected to bat second tonight for the Giants. Flores will take his cuts off Dodger lefty Andrew Heaney. Over the last two seasons, Flores is slugging .508 against left-handers who rely heavily on the slider like Heaney, though, so he should be in good shape. Expect him to follow up his two-hit performance on Sunday with another strong game.
