Like we said the Rockets are in outstanding form right now and seem headed to certain playoff berth in the west and could be a tough out. The Rockets are stacked off the bench with Chase Budinger, Kyle Lowry and Samuel Dalembert performing at very high levels down the stretch.

The Diamondbacks will send Trevor Cahill to the mound as he makes his Diamondbacks debut and he will oppose Edinson Volquez a right hander for the San Diego Padres. Arizona simply owned San Diego for the better part of last season winning 10 of their past 14 games against the Padres. The Arizona Diamondbacks got good offensive production as they started the season at 3-0. They scored 17 runs in the three games against the very good San Francisco pitching staff that included Tim Lincecum, Madison Bumgarner and Matt Cain. The Diamondbacks bullpen was outstanding as the corps allowed just 1 earned run in 10 2/3rd innings of work against the San Francisco Giants hitters.
This San Diego Padres team dropped three of four games against the LA Dodgers in their opening series. They have not been good offensively this year against right handed pitching as the San Diego team batting average is just .187. In their two night games this year the Padres have batted an anemic .109. Edinson Volquez was shaky in his opening outing of the season as he took the loss giving up a three runs with two earned in five innings of work as he allowed three hits and four walks. Take the defending NL west champions tonight against a Padres team that they have handled quite well with the top pick for sportsbook betting.
