San Diego Padres Preview

If the San Diego Padres end up winning this series they can thank relief pitcher Robert Suarez. The 31-year-old rookie stranded the Dodgers in two straight innings when the Dodgers had runners on the corners with no outs and runners on second and third with one out. In the very next inning, Jake Cronenworth hit a solo home run to extend the lead to two runs.

The Padres’ offense looked good and they won’t lose many games when their relief pitchers perform the way they did. In both of the first two games, the team that scored first ended up winning the game. With home-field advantage now in their favor, it’s crucial that the Padres don’t let the Dodgers score first and take the air out of the stadium.

Los Angeles Dodgers Preview

Game 2 was all about missed opportunities for the Dodgers. An uncharacteristic error by shortstop Trea Turner ended up costing the Dodgers a run defensively. The multiple missed opportunities by the Dodgers in the sixth and seventh inning offensively took the air out of Dodger Stadium.

It appeared that the Dodgers were overly reliant on the long ball. All three of their runs came on solo home runs even though they had 11 total hits in Game 3. There isn’t reason to panic yet as they did well in Game 1, however, they have only scored three runs in the last 14 innings. If the offense doesn’t pick it up soon, they may find themselves in a 2-1 series hole.
