The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The San Diego Padres have lost five of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 100 hits and 62 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 157 hits and 100 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 5-4 with a 3.05 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning 10 of their last 15 games. The Dodgers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 13 of their last 15 games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 107 hits and 71 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 162 hits and 92 RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 7-4 with a 3.78 ERA and 88 strikeouts this season. Maeda is 6-3 with a 4.13 ERA and 94 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 7-19 in their last 26 Saturday games, 1-9 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Paddacks last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 44-18 in their last 62 during game 3 of a series, 48-17 in their last 65 vs. National League West and 6-1 in Maedas last 7 home starts. The Padres are 13-41 in the last 54 meetings in Los Angeles and 15-38 in the last 53 meetings. The under is 3-1-2 in Maedas last 6 starts overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Padres last 6 overall.
Paddack has allowed 21 hits and 11 runs in his last 20.1 innings, and he was tagged for five hits and three earned runs in 4.2 innings against these Dodgers back in May. Maeda has allowed two or less runs in seven of his last nine starts, and he has a 2.05 ERA and .167 allowed batting average at home this season. Maeda is also allowing a .218 bating average with 46 strikeouts in 124 at bats against current San Diego hitters. The Los Angeles Dodgers have also lost back-to-back games just four times since April 14. I'll take the Dodgers and the reasonable price.
