Los Angeles Dodgers:
The Los Angeles Dodgers has been red hot lately, while the San Diego Padres have been really struggling. LA currently has the second best overall record in the majors and still the favorite to win the World Series this season at +290.
The only good thing going for San Diego is that they do play well at home this season, but the Dodgers do score an average of 5.42 runs per game while playing on the road, which puts them as the third best offensive road team.
The Dodgers will have their ace Walker Buehler get the start. The Cy Young candidate is 13-2 overall this season with a 2.11 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP. He’s coming off another impressive performance against the Mets on Friday where he got the win, but he wasn’t happy at all with the calls the umpire was giving him. Buehler has a perfect 4-0 record with an ERA of 1.76 in 7 career appearances against San Diego.
San Diego Padres:
San Diego is trying to get back on track and not savage their season and one thing that could spark some momentum is them firing their pitching coach Larry Rothschild on Monday and announcing Ben Fritz as the interim pitching coach. Fritz will look to his lefty, Blake Snell to take the mound for this game and then most likely Yu Darvish to get the start for game three of this series.
Snell is 6-5 overall this season with a 4.82 ERA and 139 strikeouts over 106 innings. In his 4 career appearances against the Dodgers, Snell has an impressive ERA of 2.08.
The Dodgers are 5-0 in Buehler’s last 5 road starts versus a team with a winning record while the Padres are 1-6 in their last 7 versus NL West. The over is 10-2 in Padres last 12 home games versus a team with a winning road record.
