The Arizona Diamondbacks' playoff hopes are on life support already, and losing a three-game series to the San Diego Padres wouldn't exactly help much. The Diamondbacks will look to avoid that fate when they face the Padres on Sunday at PETCO Park.
The Diamondbacks will put young gun Patrick Corbin on the mound in the series finale with hopes of reversing the pitchers' recent fortunes. After winning the 23-year-old's first four starts in August, the D'Backs have dropped his last three.
The Padres will trot out 25-year-old lefty Andrew Werner, who is even younger in mound time than Corbin. Werner will be making just his fourth Major League start.
The Diamondbacks are 9.5 games back of the San Francisco Giants in the National League West.
