The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks wrap up their season series this evening at Petco Park. Robbie Ray and the Dbacks continue their journey to the postseason, currently nursing a decent lead over the Rockies in the Wild Card race. The Padres will try to play spoiler and complete the sweep behind Dinelson Lamet.

In his 20th start of the season, Lamet will seek his eighth win. He's been pitching well lately, though his record doesn't reflect that. He's pitched six innings in each of his last four starts while keeping his opponents to just five total run, but he is 0-2 in that stretch. Tonight will mark his second career start against Arizona. He had one of his worst performances against them back in June, lasting only three innings and giving up nine runs (seven earned) on five hits and five walks.

Ray is making his fourth start against the Padres this season, and ninth of his career. He has an all-time 4-4 record with a 3.35 ERA against them, but he's been especially dominant this season, posting a 1.33 record while going undefeated (3-0) in those three starts. He's also a perfect 5-0 with a 1.39 ERA in his last five outings, one of which was against the Friars.
