The Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres face off on Wednesday at Petco Park in an interleague showdown. On Tuesday it was the Angels who were able to get a strong pitching outing and that led to a 4-2 victory.

The Angels have been a disappointment this season but they hope they finish their season on a strong note, and this game would go a long way. Coming into this game the Angels have won five of their last six games and in this game they need the offense to be good again. Mike Trout has been the best player for the Angels but in the last game he didn’t have any hits but did draw three walks. In this game the key is going to be getting to Clevinger early. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Padres who have the playoff spot clinched and right now they can’t win the division so resting players could end up being the game plan for the next few years. The Padres are an elite offensive team, but there have to be questions about who will play in this game. Fernando Tatis Jr and Manny Machado both played in the last game, and Machado drove in a run.
