Los Angeles Dodgers (5-9 SU, 4-10 RL, 6-4 O/U) vs San Diego Padres (7-10 SU, 8-9 RL, 3-7-0 O/U)

MLB: Monday, April 16, Petco Park, San Diego, California, 10:10 PM ET.

After getting off to a slow start this season, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be trying to gain ground in the NL West when they take on the San Diego Padres in the first game of their three-game series on Monday night.

Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is 1-0 with a 2.79 ERA, will get the start for Los Angeles. The Padres will counter with Luis Perdomo, who is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA. (edit: Robbie Erlin will pitch for Perdomo). 

Dodgers Trying To Climb Out Of NL West Cellar

After losing to the Houston Astros in the World Series last season, the Dodgers were expected to be one of the best teams in the National League this season. But so far, they find themselves at the bottom of the NL West and are fighting to get back to the top of the division.

In their last game, the Dodgers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks to snap a three-game losing streak. Now, they will be trying to build on the lead and get their second straight win.

In their last game, the Dodgers snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Diamondbacks, and Clayton Kershaw got his first win of the season, improving his record to 1-2.

Kershaw gave up two hits and one earned run in seven innings on Sunday night. He also got a lot of run support from his teammates, who finished the game with seven runs.

The Dodgers will once again need a big day from their offense if they want to defeat the Diamondbacks.

In his last start, Ryu gave up one hit and zero earned runs in six innings. The Dodgers will be hoping for a similar performance on Monday night.

Padres Trying To Win Fourth Consecutive Game

The Padres were picked to finish last in the NL West this season, but they haven’t let that get in the way of winning games, and find themselves five games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks in the division.

They will try to close the gap and add another win to their record when they face the Dodgers on Monday.

In their last game, the Padres defeated the San Francisco Giants 10-1 in what was their best offensive game of the season. The Padres got six strong innings from Joey Lucchesi, who gave up five hits and one earned run in six innings, while striking out nine batters.

They will be hoping Perdomo can give a similar performance on Monday against the Dodgers. In his last game, the second year player gave up five hits and zero earned runs, but was unable to get the win against the Colorado Rockies.

Last season, Perdomo was 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA in his only start against the Dodgers.

Trends

Los Angeles is:

  • 4-0 in Ryu’s last 4 road starts vs. a team with a losing record.
  • 15-5 in their last 20 road games vs. a left-handed starter.

San Diego is:

  • 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series.
  • 3-7 in their last 10 games following a win.
  • 3-8 in their last 11 Monday games.

The Dodgers have played well on the road, especially when Ryu Starts. The Padres have struggled at home, especially on Mondays, giving the Dodgers the edge.
