Padres vs Dodgers Game 2 Info

2022 MLB Playoffs — NLDS Game 2
No. 5 San Diego Padres (89-73, 45-36 Away) vs. No. 1 Los Angeles Dodgers (111-51, 57-24 Home)
Date: Tuesday, October 12, 2022
Time: 8:37 p.m. ET
Venue: Dodger Stadium — Los Angeles, CA
Coverage: FS1

The Los Angeles Dodgers kept up their postseason dominance with a 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres in Game 1 of the NLDS on Tuesday night. A first inning home run from shortstop Trea Turner started the game off with a bang and four scoreless innings from the LA bullpen ended it with ease.

Everything is on the line in Game 2 now. The Padres are set to host their first playoff game in front of fans since 2006 on Friday night. That crowd will be rocking no matter what, but heading home with a tied series is much better than heading home in a 0-2 hole. This is going to be an exciting showdown.

Padres vs Dodgers Prediction & Pick

LA's Clayton Kershaw has pitched against the Padres twice this season, giving up only 1 earned run over the course of 12.0 innings. Meanwhile, San Diego's Yu Darvish has posted a 2.52 ERA and 0.92 WHIP across four starts against the Dodgers in 2022 (1-2 record). These two pros get the job done.

Neither team has a clear pitching advantage here, but one team is playing at home. LA is a ridiculous 15-2 straight up in its last 17 home games against San Diego. The Dodgers' lineup is also stacked with one good hitter after another and finished the regular season as MLB's highest-scoring team.

Final Score Prediction: Padres: 2 | Dodgers: 5

Padres vs Dodgers Probable Starting Pitchers

The San Diego Padres will look to Yu Darvish (16-8, 3.10 ERA) in Game 2 and the Los Angeles Dodgers hand the ball to either Clayton Kershaw (12-3, 2.28 ERA).
