The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres face off on Tuesday in a National League West showdown at Petco Park. In the first game of this series the Padres had no issue coming away with a victory.
The Dodgers know they need to have success in this series because the last thing they need is to give the Padres more confidence. Coming into this game the Dodgers have lost three of the last four games and the pitching staff has really let them down. On Monday, the Dodgers got a good start from Clayton Kershaw but the bullpen let them down in a big way. In this game if it’s a tight battle early they need to be able to trust the defense.
On the other side of this matchup is the Padres who have a whole lot of confidence and coming into this game they have won eight games in a row. The offense was good in the last game against the Dodgers but before that they were really leaning on the pitching to have success. Fernando Tatis Jr and Manny Machado have been the stars this season for the Padres with both guys driving in 40 RBI’s.
The Dodgers are 42-17 in their last 59 games overall. The Padres are 20-6 in their last 26 games overall. The Padres are 16-5 in their last 21 home games. The Dodgers are 7-1 in their last eight meetings in San Diego. The over is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings in San Diego.
Tony Gonslin will get the start for the Dodgers and coming into this game he sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 1.57. His last start came out of the bullpen and he struggled.
Zach Davies will get the start for the Padres and coming into this game he sits with a 7-2 record and an ERA of 2.48.
These are two pitchers who have been good and this is going to be a pitchers duel. Look for a low scoring game that is going to stay well under the posted total. In terms of the side, it’s a lean to the Padres but the play is with the under.
