The Dodgers and Padres wrap up their 4 game weekend series Sunday afternoon as both teams look to pick up some momentum heading into the All Star Break.
Los Angeles trails by 6.5 games, while San Diego has buried themselves 16.5 games in back of the Dodgers in 4th place.
San Diego Padres
The Padres first half has been quite short of good.
Sitting 11 games under the break-even mark, the Padres rank near the bottom in many of the offensive and pitching categories.
San Diego averages 4.47 runs per game, which is in the middle of the pack in the MLB at 17th. As a team, they hit just .247, which is 23rd in the league.
Pitching wise, things haven’t been good for them either. As a staff, they hold an ERA of 4.61, good enough for 25th in the league. The lone exception pitching wise this season has been Drew Pomeranz, who will likely be on the move come deadline time.
Here in the series finale, the Padres will send out Christian Friedrich. The RH is 4-4 on the season, with an ERA of 4.42.
Friedrich has failed to make it past the 5th inning in his last 3 starts, going 1-2 in that span.
Los Angeles continues to hang tough in the NL West.
They sit 6.5 games back of the first place Giants in the division, as they’ve hung around and sustained striking distance following a lot of cold streaks in the first half of the season.
Corey Seager, who will represent this team in the homerun derby, has been a huge spark plug for this offense. Seager leads the team in HR (17), BA (.296), and OPS (.882).
Pitching wise, this Dodgers team has been very good. They rank 4th in ERA (3.46), and sit in 1st in both WHIP (1.13), and Ks (836).
They’ll send out Kenta Maeda, who is 7-6 with an ERA of 3.07. Maeda has gone 1-2 over his last 3 starts, allowing 4 runs in both losses and just a single run in the win.
Maeda has had staggering numbers as of late, either allowing 4 runs, or completely shutting down the opposition. In his last 10 starts, he has failed to reach the 7th inning.

Free San Diego Padres vs. L.A. Dodgers MLB Prediction:
The Padres pitching woes are very concerning here.
Given Maeda’s ability to shut down offenses, this is a spot where the Dodgers should be able to get out early and really allow Maeda to settle in.
