For Tuesday’s game, the Padres will be sending out RHP Dinelson Lamet. In his 109.1 innings and 7-7 record this year, Lamet has a 4.45 ERA with 132 Ks and 48 BBs.
San Diego has a few hitters of note. Wil Myers came into this set with 134 hits, 79 runs, 29 homers and 73 RBI while Manuel Margot posted 127 hits, 53 runs, 13 homers and 39 RBI. Myers came up empty on Monday; Margot got the day off.
Over on the Dodgers’ side, they’re rolling with LHP Alex Wood on Tuesday. In his 146.1 innings and 15-3 record this year, Wood has a 2.71 ERA with 150 Ks and 37 BBs.
Los Angeles has a few key bats as well. Corey Seager put up 152 hits, 79 runs, 20 homers and 71 RBI coming into this set, while Chris Taylor had 144 hits, 84 runs, 21 homers and 69 RBI in that time. Taylor and SEager combined for two hits, two runs and an RBI on Monday.
The Padres are 6-2 in their last eight Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last five road games versus a left-handed starter. San Diego is also 0-6 in Lamet’s last six starts and 0-8 in Lamet’s last eight starts versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers are 33-13 in their last 46 during game two of a series and 35-16 in their last 51 Tuesday games. LA is also 9-2 in Wood’s last 11 home starts and 17-4 in Wood’s last 21 starts overall.
Lamet had a nice run of four straight quality starts going, but blew it his last time up with six earned on six hits in 5.1 innings against the D-Backs. As for Wood, he coughed up five earned against Colorado but in his two starts since has given up just two earned over 12.0 innings on six hits. This should be a pretty fun matchup to watch, but all things considered I’m siding with the Dodgers since the Padres offense isn’t that great. The under makes a lot of sense as well.
