07/11 Padres Preview: Game 93 @ Dodgers

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

We got another fantastic start out of Odrisamer Despaigne last night, but our Padres couldn't get things done at the plate against Clayton Kershaw. Hopefully the offense (and defense) can get their act together tonight behind another rookie, Jesse Hahn, as they face Dan Haren.

Like his teammate Despaigne, Hahn has been impressive in his short major league career so far. He is, however, coming off his second loss of the season. He gave up three runs in seven innings of work, but retired 11 batters in order before exiting the game against the Giants last week. Prior to that, he had won four straight starts while posting a 0.75 ERA with 31 strikeouts through 24 innings.

Haren is 1-3 with a 6.04 ERA in his last five starts against San Diego, but this will be his first time pitching against them at Dodger Stadium. His most recent time facing them was just a few weeks ago when the Dodgers came to Petco Park. Haren gave up three runs in 5 2/3 innings before leaving the game and getting a no-decision. Haren is 8-5 this season with a 4.06 ERA - highest in the Dodgers rotation, but he's pitched much better in eight starts at home, going 4-1 with a  2.96 ERA.

Catch the action tonight at 7:10 PT and see if our Padres can even up the series.
