WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

WHAT: Game 1 of a 3-game set with the Dodgers

WHEN: Thursday, August 1st 2019, at 7:10 p.m.

WHERE: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA

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: The Padres are coming off a disappointing loss to the Baltimore Orioles which capped off a season-killing 8-16 month of July. Tonight, they will try to start clawing their way back into having an outside shot at competing for the Wild Card when they travel to Los Angeles to take on the division-leading Dodgers.

Joey Lucchesi, who is coming off a strong outing against the San Francisco Giants, will take the mound for the Friars and he will face a tall task. The Dodgers have one of Major League Baseball’s best offenses, and he will need to contain them if the Padres are going to have a shot at scoring enough runs against Clayton Kershaw to win.
