After a 7-1 loss on Friday, the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres, 12-1 on Saturday. Therefore, we've got a rubber match of a three-game series tonight. The Dodgers already have 91 wins on the season with just 41 losses. Essentially, they've won two of every three games this season. That would imply that the Dodgers should win tonight's game against San Diego. Will things work out like that?

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres Prediction

The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to finish off the San Diego Padres with a bullpen game. Caleb Ferguson will get the start for the Dodgers. The right-handed pitcher has a 1.85 ERA in 25 games this season. He's holding a .90 WHIP and has 23 strikeouts. Ferguson has been really good for the Dodgers this season. We'll also see a lot of Ryan Pepiot. Pepiot is a prospect and rookie pitcher for the Dodgers, who has thrown a lot of innings for the Dodgers this year due to all the injuries in the rotation. Pepiot has struck out 25.8% of batters faced in the last 30 days but still has a high xFIP of 6.69. Pepiot is a flyball pitcher but doesn't allow many line drives. He just also won't get many ground balls. It's lefties that are having more success against Pepiot. But the only two lefties that have hit consistently against righties lately are Juan Soto and Trent Grisham. However, even Soto only has a .163 ISO. He's not hitting for high power right now against righties.

On the flip side, Mike Clevinger will get the start for the Padres. Things have been ugly for the righty. He's 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA, but in the last 30 days, Clevinger has an xFIP of 7.11. He's struck out 12.7% of batters while walking 10% of batters. And just like Pepiot, Clevinger is getting a high rate of fly balls while earning a very limited amount of ground balls. The Dodgers have the power to get the ball out of the yard in the air. Five of the nine batters have an ISO of at least .239 against righties. If Clevinger isn't going to earn strikeouts, the Dodgers will be able to hit for power. No matter who the Dodgers throw out there, I still like the Dodgers to have more success offensively. I'll take the Dodger on the runline for the second straight day. It worked last night!
