The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Saturday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium. The San Diego Padres look for a win after winning 7 of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers look to build on their 6-game winning streak.

The San Diego Padres have scored 13 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 9 games. The Padres have won 5 of their last 6 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Manny Machado leads the Padres with 109 hits and 60 RBI, while Jake Cronenworth and Jurickson Profar have combined for 192 hits and 102 RBI. Mike Clevinger gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 3.13 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. This will be Clevinger’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have won 16 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Dodgers with 134 hits and 68 RBI, while Trea Turner and Mookie Betts have combined for 231 hits and 136 RBI. Andrew Heaney gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Heaney is 1-0 with a 1.26 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.

The Padres are 6-13 in their last 19 road games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The Dodgers are 54-17 in their last 71 home games and 37-14 in their last 51 overall. The over is 8-3-1 in Padres last 12 overall. The under is 14-6-4 in Dodgers last 24 home games. The Padres are 15-40 in the last 55 meetings in Los Angeles and 24-56 in the last 80 meetings.

The San Diego Padres still have to prove themselves against quality teams before we can truly jump on the bandwagon, and their last two efforts aren’t all that encouraging. The Dodgers have been the Padres big brother over the years. Andrew Heaney hasn’t pitched much this season, but he’s been ridiculous when he actually pitches, allowing 2 earned runs in his last 23.1 innings. It’s hard to bet against the Dodgers here. Give me the home team.
