The MLB is back in action on Friday as the San Diego Padres will clash with the Los Angeles Dodgers at the at the Dodger Stadium. This is game one of a three-game series. The Padres will start this game with Eric Lauer and the Dodgers will counter with Rich Hill.
San Diego Padres Form
The Padres had another poor season. They will now miss the playoffs for 13 years in a row. They were one of the worst teams in the league this year and there is no positive about them to be said. They will need to get back to the drawing board in order to regroup for next season.
The Padres have averaged 3.80 runs per game and have allowed 4.61 runs per game on the road.
Eric Lauer record against the Dodgers stands at 2-0 with a 0.61 ERA.
On the offensive side of the game, they have been poor this season as they are placed on the 27th spot in the league in scoring, putting up just 3.84 runs per game, while also being on the 30th spot in hitting at .235 and 24th spot in homers with a total of 153. On the mound, they have been below average as they are placed on the 20th spot in the league in ERA at 4.43, while also being on the 22nd spot in WHIP at 1.34 and 14th spot in K’s with 1304.
Los Angeles Dodgers Form
The Dodgers are on the top spot in the National League West this season. It seems that they will win this division as they are having a 2.5 lead over the Rockies with two weeks left to the end of the regular part of the season.
The Dodgers have averaged 4.32 runs per game and have allowed 3.69 runs per game here at home for the year. Rich Hill record stands at 5-4 with a 3.09 ERA in 10 career starts against the Padres.
On the offensive side of the game, the Dodgers are placed on the 6th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.80 runs per game, while also being on the 17th spot in hitting at .246 and 2nd spot in homers with a total of 218. On the mound, they have been solid as they are placed on the 2nd spot in the league in with an ERA of 3.40 while being on the 2nd spot in WHIP at 1.16 and 3rd spot in K’s with 1476.
The Padres are one of the worst teams in the league this season. For them, this is another missed year and they do not have much to play for. On the other side, the Dodgers have been playing very well at the moment. They can’t avoid slipping in this game as they aim to keep the top spot in the division. I expect an easy win for the Dodgers.
