The San Diego Padres continued their season of disappointment as they failed to even mount a threat to the Dodgers on Saturday. Yangervis Solarte had a hit and he was the only Padre to reach base as the Padres had one hit total. Starting pitcher Ian Kennedy allowed six hits and two runs while striking out six over 6.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-4 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Padres start james Shields who has allowed 53 hits and 23 earned runs while striking out 75 over 55.1 innings for a 5-0 record and a 3.74 ERA.
Los Angeles is 19-7 in their last 26 Sunday games, 42-18 in their last 60 home games, and 0-4 in game three of a series. San Diego is 1-7 in their last eight games, 1-6 against a right-handed starter, and 4-0 in Shields’ last four starts. San Diego is 1-5 in their last six games in Los Angeles.
The Padres got Shields for games like this and I expect him to come up big and for the padres to get the win.
