The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium. On Saturday it was the Dodgers that were able to secure the 8-3 victory.
The Padres sit with a 61-49 record overall but they have lost two games in a row against the Dodgers. The Padres really upgraded the offense at the trade deadline with their offense and they are averaging 4.42 runs per game. In the first two games of this series though the Padres have scored only four runs total. The pitching is giving up 4.05 runs per game and it’s going to need the pitching that is good in this game.
The Dodgers sit with a 74-33 record overall and they have scored 16 runs over the last two games. Most take for granted what the Dodgers have been able to do during the regular season the last few years. The Dodgers pitching is giving up only 3.23 runs per game which is 1st in the league while their offense is ranked second in the league. Trea Turner has hit 18 home runs and driven in 77 RBIs so far this season.
On the mound for the Padres is Yu Darvish who sits with a 10-4 record and an ERA of 3.30. In his last start against the Colorado Rockies, he went six innings giving up six hits and three runs.
On the mound for the Dodgers will be Tyler Anderson and he sits with a 12-1 record and an ERA of 2.89. In his last start against the San Francisco Giants he went five innings giving up six hits and five runs.
The Dodgers are 6-0 in Anderson’s last six home starts. The over is 3-0-2 in the Padres last five road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Darvish’s last six road starts. The over is 4-1-1 in Darvish's last 6 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.
Anderson is coming off a bad start, but I still think he is the play here with the Dodgers. Anderson overall has an ERA of 2.89 and has 12 wins so far this year. The Padres bats are going to be ice cold, and the Dodgers will get the job done.
