The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers end their four-game series Sunday afternoon.
The San Diego Padres look for consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 15 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The San Diego Padres offense has caught fire lately, and they’ve won nine of their last 13 games when scoring more than three runs. Wil Myers leads San Diego with 97 hits, Matt Kemp has 58 RBI and Melvin Upton Jr. has 16 home runs. Christian Friedrich gets the ball, and he’s 4-4 with a 4.42 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Friedrich is 0-0 with a 7.84 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense is also rolling lately, and they’ve won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 104 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 43 RBI and Justin Turner has 13 home runs. Kenta Maeda takes the hill, and he’s 7-6 with a 3.07 ERA and 94 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 17-39 in their last 56 Sunday games and 1-8 in their last 9 during game 4 of a series. The Dodgers are 19-8 in their last 27 during game 4 of a series and 2-5 in Maedas last 7 home starts. The Padres are 8-19 in the last 27 meetings in Los Angeles.
Both teams are hitting the ball very well as of late, but the Dodgers have the big ptching advantage in this matchup with Maeda on the hill. I like the Dodgers to get another win and head into the All Star break on fire.
