The great city of Los Angeles has a LOT to celebrate these days. The Los Angeles Lakers are on their way to a slam-dunk NBA Finals sweep of the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Dodgers look like they’re also poised to bring the city of LA their city’s second major sports trophy of 2020.
The Dodgers still have a long way to go but with baseball’s best regular season record, they’re making it no secret that they’ve got their eye on the World Series trophy that has eluded them since the days Tommy Lasorda managed them way back in 1988. With players like Mookie Betts on offense and Clayton Kershaw on the mound, the Dodgers are indeed an imposing presence.
The San Diego Padres however are not exactly a bunch of pushovers. Finishing behind only the Dodgers in the National League, the Padres are the upstart team this season. While the Dodgers swept through round 1, the Padres needed three games to take care of the St. Louis Cardinals to land here. Fernando Tatis Jr., the 21 year old shortstop and veteran, Manny Machado lead the charge for the Padres.
The difference-maker looks like it will be the pitching and while the Dodgers look stacked in that department, the Padres rotation is a mess at this point. Chris Paddack and Zach Davies have had trouble giving up home runs and are the top two pitchers in the Padres rotation at this point due to injuries to other players like Mike Clevinger and Dinelson Lamet. Davies will likely get the Game 1 start coming off a start against the Cardinals where he lasted only two innings.
While this should be a fun series to watch, we’re looking for the Dodgers to take Game 1 handily.
