The San Diego Padres look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The San Diego Padres have lost five of their last eight 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. Joey Lucchesi gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 3.91 ERA and 88 strikeouts this season. Lucchesi is 0-3 with a 7.64 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost their last four games when scoring three or less runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 107 hits and 71 RBI while Justin Turner and Alex Verdugo have combined for 165 hits and 71 RBI. Ross Stripling gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.45 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Stripling is 4-4 with a 2.61 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 35-74 in their last 109 Sunday games, 6-2 in Lucchesis last 8 starts with 6 days of rest and 2-5 in Lucchesis last 7 road starts. The Dodgers are 6-0 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series, 44-18 in their last 62 Sunday games and 5-0 in Striplings last 5 starts. The Padres are 14-41 in the last 55 meetings in Los Angeles, 16-38 in the last 54 meetings and 0-4 in Lucchesis last 4 starts vs. Dodgers. The under is 5-0-1 in Striplings last 6 starts overall. The over is 6-2 in Lucchesis last 8 road starts.
Lucchesi was great in the month of June, but now he goes on the road where he has a 6.10 ERA and .268 allowed batting average. In 74 at bats against current Dodgers, Lucchesi is allowing a .257 batting average with four homers. Stripling was tagged in his last start against Arizona, but he's still allowing a 2.70 ERA and .232 batting average through 30 innings at home. The Los Angeles Dodgers also haven't lost three straight games since April 11-13. And while we've lost on the Dodgers the last two nights, it's simply due to the offense not showing up, and we know these bats won't stay quiet for long. I'll triple down on the Dodgers.
