Shoutout: On Friday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner and final score of Diamondbacks-Padres.

San Diego won 4-2. We hope you listened to our advice. We had the Padres on the moneyline and the under-8.

Tim Maher (@glenyrfarm) was among those who had the Padres and came closest to the final score. Nice going, TIm!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
