Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
This is a game between 2 talented offenses and 2 talented starting pitchers.
After a game 1 loss, I look for the Dodgers to bounce back.
Musgrove has been good, but I still think Bauer is better. I think Bauer will be effective against the Friars. To me, the Dodgers have the firepower to hit around Musgrove. They may not crush him, but I am confident they will do enough to get a win.
Give me the Dodgers to win straight up.
