Former All-Star pitchers Blake Snell and Patrick Corbin were not on the roster for this year’s Midsummer Classic, and the two will look to rediscover their top form when they begin the second half of the season on Saturday in Washington.
Snell’s first season with the San Diego Padres has had its ups and downs. When pitching in San Diego, he looks like his former Cy Young Award-winning self, with a 1.43 ERA, three home runs allowed in 37 / innings and .167 hit by opponents.
On the road, Snell has been completely different. He has a 9.09 ERA, averaging less than four innings per start and opponents hitting .313, while hitting 7.8 walks per nine innings.
He will face Corbyn, who is conceding 1.7 home runs and three runs per nine innings while posting a 5.40 ERA and has allowed at least three runs in 11 of his 16 runs this season.
Among National League teams, the Nationals have the best batting average, while the Padres are fifth in Rod’s batting average. The Padres are second in the National League in home runs per game on the road, so both pitchers will be picking up where they left off before the All-Star Break: clash.
drama: Padres vs National, total over 9 runs.
