The Los Angeles Dodgers have the unfortunate designation of playing in the NL West, meaning they are still fighting for a division title and the ability to avoid the Wild Card game due to the presence of the rival Giants atop the division.

LA’s next opponent as they try to keep themselves outside of the uncertain nature of the Wild Card playoff is the San Diego Padres, who are crashing out of the postseason despite a roster full of star players like Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado.

The Dodgers are already coming off of a win in which Julio Urias pitched a gem, and they will look to carry that momentum over to tonight, as they can’t let their California rivals off the mat for a second.

With every game meaning even more thanks to San Francisco’s stubborn refusal to even attempt to lose a game, the Dodgers need to pull out a series win in this game.

Dodgers Pitcher Today

The Dodgers will try to lean on a Cy Young candidate in Walker Buehler, who is looking to get back on the right track after getting roughed up just a bit in his last start against San Francisco. A strong outing could help reassert himself at the very top of the hypothetical Cy Young rankings.

San Diego will turn to former top prospect Chris Paddack, who has an ERA pushing 5.00 this season after a strong start to his career. Still, the most unusual pitchers have been known to have success against this lineup, so don’t expect that LA will just tee off.

Stay tuned! The lineup will drop closer to first pitch.

Dodgers vs Padres Prediction Today

Los Angeles got lucky in that they’ll catch the Padres in the middle of a downward slide with Paddack going against Buehler. With Walker unlikely to serve up two horrendous outings in a row and the Dodgers ready to go after Paddack, expect an LA victory.

Dodgers 6, Padres 2.
