5/3 Game Thread: Padres (18-14) vs. Dodgers (20-13)

MLB: San Diego Padres at Washington Nationals Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

WHAT: Game 1 of the Dodgers series

WHEN: Friday, May 3, 2019, at 7:10 p.m.

WHERE: PetCo Park

HOW: Watch on FOX Sports San Diego (or FOX Sports Go), listen on 97.3FM The Fan. Spanish broadcasts on FOX Deportes San Diego and XEMO 860AM.

WHY: Eric Lauer has quite the test in front of him as he goes head-to-head with Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers in the first game of the Padres homestand. The Friars can pull to within half a game of their division rivals with a win tonight, and after yesterday’s offensive explosion in Atlanta, that certainly feels like a real possibility.

The Dodgers’ have a truly potent lineup headlined by Cody Bellinger who is off to an absurdly hot start to the season. Bellinger is already at 3.3 WAR and has already hit 14 home runs. If the Padres are to win tonight, they’ll really have to be at their best.
