San Diego Padres
Teetering on the NL wildcard periphery and 19 games back of tonight’s opponent, the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego has little at stake today other than pride.
And that pride has been worn thin as the Padres are 4-8 since July 18. Most recently, San Diego split an interleague affair with Baltimore. The Orioles outgunned the Padres Tuesday night, 8-5.
With these mounting setbacks, opening a four-game road set vs. LAD may seem like scaling a stratospheric peak for Brandon Hyde’s men.
Though, San Diego owns three straight wins over the Dodgers -and a respectable 4-5 SU record this season vs. LAD.
Joey Lucchesi (7-5, 4.12 ERA) looks to aid his charge while opening tonight. Pitching well of late, contrary to recorded wins and losses, Lucchesi owns a July 7 win over the Dodgers. That night, the 26-year-old hurler threw six innings of three run ball and San Diego won 5-3.
The Padres will search deep for that lost momentum while attempting a fourth-straight upset of the NL’s best.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles hopes to solve its Padre issues tonight after faring 6-4 over its last ten in a stretch occupied by middling competition.
The Dodgers beat Colorado up 9-4 Tuesday night to knot their current series 1-1.
Future hall of famer Clayton Kershaw (9-2, 2.85 ERA) starts tonight for Los Angeles. Following a down 2018 by his standards, the three-time Cy Young winner is back in All Star form and will go for a fifth win in six decisions during his 2019 debut opposite San Diego.
Kershaw, 31, has allowed just three runs during his last 18 innings pitched -all LAD wins.
Los Angeles is 14-4 this year when Kershaw opens.

Free San Diego Padres vs Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Despite their late-July misgivings, the Padres have earned respect for tonight’s encounter after edging LAD three straight times.
However, with Kershaw rolling, the Dodgers should snap their curious losing streak this evening vs. an overmatched Padres group.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under the number, Dodgers SU
Neither club has been on a recent offensive tear. And with their latest head-to-head matchups going well under, expect an under total in tonight’s series opener.
