In 12 starts this season, Davies is 2-3 with a 4.94 ERA. He had given up one or zero earned runs in five of six starts prior to giving up four runs in 4.1 innings his last time out.

The Padres took the opening game of the series on Monday to improve to 37-25 this season, 1.5 games behind the San Francisco Giants for the top spot in the N.L. West. Lamet appeared in seven games this season including five starts, though he does not go long in his starts. He is 1-0 with a 2.50 ERA and has thrown more than three innings just once, which came in his last time out on June 2nd, a 6-1 loss to the Cubs.
