The National League Division Series between a pair of NL West rivals changes venues from the City of Angels to what is known as the Birthplace of California. It’s the Los Angeles Dodgers making the in-state trek down I-15 as they face the San Diego Padres in Game 3 of their best-of-five series Friday night. These teams split the first two games of the set in the City of Angels with the Dodgers prevailing 5-3 in the series opener Tuesday night before the Padres answered with a similar 5-3 triumph in Game 2 of the series on Wednesday night.
Los Angeles lost home field advantage in the series as they were unable to earn the victory in Game 2 of the series Wednesday night. The Dodgers now hope to regroup on the road to avoid being put on the brink of elimination in this series. On Wednesday night, Los Angeles got two hits each from Gavin Lux, Max Muncy (run, RBI) and Freddie Freeman (run, RBI) in the loss. Freeman (his first), Muncy (his first) and Trea Turner (his second) each homered in the loss for the Dodgers, who were zero for eight with runners in scoring position in the game. Clayton Kershaw didn’t factor in the decision as he threw five innings, allowing three runs on six hits with no walks and six strikeouts.
San Diego shrugged off the Dodgers’ early power play in Game 2 and earned the victory to even the series before heading back home for Games 3 and 4. The Padres now try to maintain their home-field advantage and avoid going back to Dodger Stadium for a potential winner take all Game 5.
San Diego won Game 2 but the fans need to see them beat the Dodgers again before they can have full faith in them. The Dodgers have the rest advantage in their favor, which may turn the series for them.
