Game Thread: Padres @ Dodgers

Let’s keep things hot in L.A.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Padres (9-7) make their first stop tonight in Los Angeles to begin a four-game series against the Dodgers (11-5) before making two more stops elsewhere prior to getting back to Petco Park.

After they’re done in L.A., they’ll head to Arizona (6-10) for the third series of the season between the two before ending finishing up in Texas with a three-game tilt with the Texans (6-8).

The Friars are coming off one of the most explosive and historic outings in franchise history. Before the third inning was over, six home runs had been hit by a combined five players, including two from Manny Machado and another by Fernando Tatis Jr. They also now lead the big leagues with 29 home runs on the year and currently sit with the second-most runs scored with 86.

Right-hander Luis Perdomo will be on the mound tonight for San Diego and he’ll be facing off against Dustin May who had himself a grand time against the Padres the last time they faced each other. On August 4, he struck out eight in six innings in a 5-2 Dodger victory.

This is Perdomo’s first start of the season. In five innings of relief, he’s allowed three hits, three runs with four Ks.

Starting Lineup:

Tonight’s lineup is about as solid as it gets through the first seven slots. Jake Cronenworth is getting the nod at second tonight and Jurickson is the team’s DH. Other than that, everyone is in their usual spot.
