The Los Angeles Dodgers look for consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense has really cooled off the last week, and they’ve lost four of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 162 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 75 RBI and Justin Turner has 24 home runs. Rich Hill takes the hill, and he’s 10-3 with a 2.09 ERA and 93 strikeouts this season. Hill is 0-3 with a 8.16 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 17-35 in their last 52 road games and 1-7 in their last 8 games vs. a left-handed starter. The Dodgers are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 36-16 in their last 52 home games. The Padres are 8-21 in the last 29 meetings in Los Angeles.
Hill was lights out in his only start pitching for the Dodgers and if he has anywhere close to the same stuff, a strugglign Padres lineup won't do much damage. The Dodgers should be able to get this victory.
