It’s probably pretty fair to say that Opening Day was one to forget for the Padres. They’ll look for quite the rebound performance when they take on the Dodgers in game 2 of a 3 game set.
San Diego Padres
San Diego was completely embarrassed on their home field on Monday afternoon. The Padres allowed 15 runs as they saw the Dodgers score 12 times in innings 6-8, as they completely spoiled the party and dominated the Dodgers.
They’ll turn here to RH James Shields, who was one of their most consistent pitchers in the Padres organization last year. Shields finished with an ERA of just 3.91 and had a winning record at 13-7.
Shields has been one guy who doesn’t shy away from eating innings. He’s pitched 200 or more in 8 of his last 9 and has also put in 33 or 34 starts over his last 8 seasons. He’s one guy the Padres can turn too when they need a stopper or someone to log some innings to help keep the bullpen fresh.
The Dodgers didn’t shy away one bit or feel intimidated in anyway when they took on San Diego for their home opener. The Dodgers put up a 15 spot and made things look easy in a 15-0 route.
SP Clayton Kershaw was once again dominant, going 7.0 innings allowing just 1 hit. Kershaw will now hand the ball over to new Dodger Scott Kazmir.
The Dodgers LH was a mess during Spring Training. He continued to battle injuries and saw some fatigue in his arm, but that didn’t stop him from battling back. He will be making his National League debut on Tuesday.
Los Angeles has dominated the Padres as of late, going 14-5 last season and having a solid record in Petco Park as they finished 7-3 last season.
