Betting Pick: San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Betting Pick: San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres will conclude a brief two-game series when they meet one more time at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night. San Diego had alternated wins and losses over its last six contests heading into Tuesday. Los Angeles is coming off a split of a four-game series with Washington.

The Padres attempt to chip away at the four-game gap between them and the Dodgers when they visit Los Angeles for a pair of games between the division rivals. San Diego was unable to take advantage of some recent L.A. losses, getting outscored 25-13 while dropping two of three in Colorado. In the finale of a series with the Dodgers two weeks ago, Manuel Margot and Wil Myers each laid down successful bunts after Eric Hosmer opened the ninth inning with a single off closer Kenley Jansen in a one-run game. Hunter Renfroe then launched a pinch-hit, walk-off grand slam to give the Padres an 8-5 victory

The Dodgers were two strikes away from winning three straight one-run games in San Diego earlier this month before the Padres showed the kind of resilience they are going to need if they hope to remain in the National League West race all season long. Los Angeles scored the eventual game-winning run in the ninth inning in each of its first two victories in San Diego on May 3 and May 4. The Dodgers got a two-run homer from Chris Taylor in the series finale before collapsing. Los Angeles owns the NL’s best home record at 17-6, although two of those losses came during a four-game series split with Washington over the weekend.
