The San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers open a three-game series starting on Friday. These two teams could possibly square off in the NL wildcard game, so each will be looking to gain some kind of advantage over the other.
Julio Urías threw seven shutout innings for his major league-leading 17th victory, Max Muncy slugged a two-run homer and Los Angeles beat San Diego 3-0 on Friday night.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
It has to be frustrating for San Diego to have spent so much money in the off-season to bolster their rotation only for LA to do the same throughout the year. The Padres are sending out Blake Snell in hopes of grabbing an important win only for the Dodgers to match them with Max Scherzer.
Snell has not lived up to his expectations this season and Scherzer is simply a different animal on the mound.
I’m taking the Dodgers pitching and offense again in the series finale.
