In game two of the best-to-five series the San Diego Padres face the Los Angeles Dodgers after a very interesting Game one. Last night Padres ace Mike Clevinger was only able to make it to the first batter in the second inning before leaving with tightness concerns.
Despite this the Padres were able to hold a collective no-hitter against this incredibly dangerous Dodgers lineup. With that being said the Padres pitchers let up a total of 10 walks and gave up five runs in an eventual 5-1 loss.
It is important to note that even though the padres were forced to string together bullpen pitchers to get through the game they didn’t have to use Emilio Pagan, Drew Pomeranz or Trevor Rosenthal which leaves them with plenty of options as Chris Paddack takes the hill against Kershaw.
The series is played in the Texas Rangers new ballpark in Arlington. This is the only location that if either team wins the next series than they will not have had to travel at any point in these playoffs. (I.e. the NLCS and the World Series are being played at Globe Life Field).
San Diego Padres
San Diego was held to just one run last night, while they had scored four or more in each of their last eight previous. The Padres needs to start converting runners in to runs as they come into a pivotal game two against one of the more dominant pitchers in the game today.
Tommy Pham leads San Diego with six hits and one RBI while Tatis Jr. and Jake Cronenworth have combined for 11 hits and seven RBI.
If the Padres do send out Chris Paddack to the mound Wednesday the Dodgers will face a pitcher who had a regular season record of (4-6) and an ERA of 5.32. He will try to forget his first postseason start against the Cardinals who put up 6 runs in the second inning and drove him out before the end of the third.
The Padres will have to score early and score often against the Dodgers on Wednesday if they wish to stay in this game. Thats a lot to ask of a young team that, even though they’ve hit well, will face a future Hall of Famer, in Kershaw.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers will look to take a huge step in reaching the NLCS and a commanding 2-0 series lead against the Padres Wednesday night. Los Angeles has been rolling in these playoffs as they are a combined 3-0 and have outscored their opponents 12-3.
Former Red Sox all-star Mookie Betts leads the playoff push with 4 hits and 3 RBI’s while Taylor and Bellinger both combined for 6 hits and one RBI in the first 3 games.
The Padres face Paddack who has, in two games this year, allowed 11 hits, nine runs on just as many innings of work. The Dodgers will look to continue that success against Paddack in Arlington on Wednesday night.
Kershaw goes against a Padres team that he has consistently dominated over the years. He has a 21-7 record, 2.03 ERA and 277 K’s against San Diego, however he did allow three runs in 6 and a third against the Padres this year… sitting down nine Padre hitters on strikes in the process.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
I have a weird feeling about this game. This is a turning point game for both teams as the Dodgers will look to cement their domination and make it look “easy” on their way to another NLCS.
The Padres will have one shot to prove to the baseball world that they are not only the new face of baseball, but can put up a fight as well. As it stands right now I have to stick with Kershaw and the Dodgers as everything points in their direction on Wednesday.
However don’t be surprised if this is a wild ride as baseball has a way of surprising you, especially in October. Just ask Kershaw.
