San Diego Padres
The Padres were hopeful that they could begin the season on a high note but the 14-3 defeat they suffered instead is something all too common for San Diego fans. Neither the offense nor the defense showed up for San Diego in their opening match, as starter Jhoulys Chacin allowed nine runs on just eight hits, and Christian Bethancourt and Jose Torres allowed 5 runs in 2.1 frames. The Padres’ bats couldn’t keep up with the onslaught of runs the Dodgers were delivering, and they only had 5 hits all night. Ryan Schimpf was Los Angeles’ top threat delivering a pair of hits and a long ball. Manuel Margot and Yangervis Solarte each had a run for San Diego.
To help deliver an upset in Game 2, the Padres will turn to left handed pitcher Clayton Richard. In 2016, Richard went 3-3 and had a 2.52 ERA in a resume that included nine starts and a pair of relief appearances.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers don’t need to change much to get another win over their California rival. Some baseball wagering fans consider the Dodgers to be a World Series favorite and their opening day performance against San Diego doesn’t hurt that image, but overall it’s too early to tell. Clayton Kershaw pitched a good game, only allowing 2 runs on 2 hits in 7 innings, delivering 8 strikeouts in that time.
The Dodgers will send Kenta Maeda to the mound Tuesday night. 2016 was Maeda’s first year with Los Angeles and he enjoyed a decent amount of success posting a 16-11 record with a 3.48 ERA in 32 starts.
