Analysis

(5%) SAN DIEGO. It's not easy to win as a knuckle-ball pitcher. Recently, however, Waldron has cracked the code. Waldron doesn't exclusively throw knuckleballs. Rather, he's highly effective at mixing them in. It's working. He's allowed just one run over his past two starts combined, a span of 13 innings. He's got a 1.47 ERA and 0.843 WHIP his past three starts. Over his past five starts, he's given up just six total runs. On the other hand, Nelson is 0-2 with a 7.13 ERA his past three starts. The Diamondbacks are 3-6 in his nine starts, 0-4 when he pitches on the road. Waldron has been much better under the lights than during the day. Nelson got the better of him (neither pitcher well) when the two opposed each other at Arizona last month. Look for Waldron, who has been lights out ever since, to settle the score. *good at 5% up to -160
