The Dodgers are now hot on the tails of the San Francisco Giants in the NL West race as they go for the sweep of the San Diego Padres at home. Japanese international rookie Kenta Maeda (7-6, 3.07 ERA) gets the call for the Dodgers in a matchup vs the lefty Christian Friedrich (4-4, 4.42 ERA).
- The Dodgers are 12-3 in their last 15 games at home.
- The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Padres’ last 11 games.
- The Dodgers are 7-3 in their last ten games.
The book is out on Friedrich – and it’s not a bestseller. The lefty has given up four or more runs in all of his last four starts and his team is 1-4 in their last five when he takes the mound. In his last start against the Dodgers, Friedrich lasted just 3.1 innings, giving up six hits and two runs.
Maeda has been as solid as he was expected to be as more often than not, success overseas has been translating to the MLB (Tanaka, Darvish etc.,). He has, however, been roughed up in two of his last three starts and has been a little worse at home than on the road. He owns a 2-5 record and a 3.46 ERA at Dodger Stadium.
