Even though he is sporting a losing mark of 8-10, Tyson Ross has been rock solid for the padres this year. The San Diego righty has a solid 2.70 ERA but has been the victim of a complete lack of run support, most visible in his more recent starts. Over his last nine starts, the Padres have scored a total of 10 runs for the All-Star. Tonight, he gets the ball and will be opposed by the Cubs Edwin Jackson, who may be the guy for the Padres to give Ross some more run support. The Padres have absolutely destroyed Jackson through the years, who has posted an 0-5 record with a 6.95 ERA against these Padres. The Cubs have really struggled post-All Star break and are 1-6 over their last seven games. The Cubs are also just 6-20 in Jackson's last 26 starts as an underdog. We will roll with Ross here tonight at a reasonable price and expect the Padres to continue their domination of Jackson. The Sharps say...
