Game Thread: 8/5 Dodgers @ Padres

Need this one. In the name of momentum!

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight is game three with the Dodgers in Petco Park and a win tonight puts the Padres back in second place in the NL West. It will also set them up with momentum heading into another series with the Diamondbacks, whom San Diego flooded to the tune of a 3-1 series win to begin the season.

Garrett Richards and Ross Stripling are your starters on the mound tonight in a battle of established veterans. Stripling is cruising with a 2-0 record early on in the year while Richards is seeking his first win of the season.

Starting Lineup:

After Tatis and Grisham in the #1 and #2 spots, Pham gets bumped into cleanup with Machado dropping to #4. The surging Cronenworth is in the #5 spot with Myers back in the lineup at #6. Your DH tonight is Garcia and Hedges gets the nod a catcher and #8. Profar is also back for tonight at #9.
