Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018, Petco Park

SP: Maeda (LAD) vs. Lucchesi (SD)

On Wednesday evening, the MLB will have a bunch of games to choose from. Our game, the Dodgers and Padres, will be the final game of the night with a 10:10 P.M ET first pitch. This is not one you want to miss. After all, they are NL West rivals that have been playing against each other for a long, long time.

Dodgers Creeping Up

Although they’ve been playing good the last few months, the Los Angeles Dodgers still haven’t pulled themselves all the way back. They had an awful start to the season and have been paying for it since. Right now, if the postseason started today they would be on the outside looking in. Fortunately for them, though, they’re only a half-game back in the NL West and 1.5 games back of the NL Wild Card.

Matt Kemp has been a big reason why they’ve picked it up recently. He absolutely came out of nowhere this year, and even had to fight for a roster spot in Spring Training. However, in the 2018 season, he’s hit a team-high .315 with the most RBIs on the team (58). In turn, he was honored as the starting center fielder for the 2018 All-Star Game.

Kenta Maeda will make the start for the Dodgers on Wednesday. He’s been very effective so far in 15 starts. He has an ERA of 3.24 and a 1.1 WAR.

Padres Rebuilding in 2018

It’s no surprise that the San Diego Padres will likely miss the 2018 postseason. After all, they have few stars and the 24th-highest payroll in the MLB. In their last eight games, they’ve gone 2-6 and sit 12 games out of first place in the NL West. Having said that, the Padres are building for the future. They have a few good pieces to work with and with the proper development, the team could be viable in the next few years.

Right now, the main issue is the offense. The unit ranks second-t0-last in on-base percentage and slugging percentage, as well as 27th-best in runs scored and batting average.

On the mound, however, is where you find those solid pieces. Among them is Joey Lucchesi, the guy who will start for San Diego on Wednesday. He has an ERA of 3.27 in 13 starts and will likely be the team’s ace in the near future.

Trends:

LAD:

  • 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.
  • 15-5 in their last 20 road games.

SD:

  • 2-6 in their last 8 games overall.
  • 2-5 in their last 7 home games vs. LAD.

On Wednesday evening, the MLB will have a bunch of games to choose from. Our game, the Dodgers and Padres, will be the final game of the night with a 10:10 P.M ET first pitch. This is not one you want to miss. After all, they are NL West rivals that have been playing against each other for a long time.

Betting-wise, you can’t really trust the Padres, even with Lucchesi on the hill. They simply do not have enough offense and will absolutely struggle when facing Maeda on Wednesday. Against right-handed arms, the Padres are hitting just .230 with less than four runs per game. Take LA in this one.
