Preview: Athletics at Astros
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

The Oakland Athletics attempt to extend their series unbeaten streak to eight when they visit the American League West-leading Houston Astros on Thursday afternoon for the finale of their four-game set. Khris Davis knocked in three runs and extended his hitting streak to a career-high 13 contests as the Athletics, who went 6-0-1 in their previous seven series, earned an 8-3 victory on Wednesday - their second in the set.

Oakland, which has won 12 of its last 15 games, is just 3-9 against the Astros this year but an impressive 28-20 on the road after getting a three-run homer from Chad Pinder on Wednesday that contributed to a 6-0 lead. Trevor Cahill will try to clinch a series victory for the Athletics on Thursday as he takes the mound opposite Houston’s Charlie Morton, who has limited opponents to a .199 batting average this season. The Astros dropped to 7-3 in July with Wednesday’s loss and could be without the versatile Marwin Gonzalez, who is day-to-day after sitting out the setback with wrist and elbow injuries. Reigning AL MVP Jose Altuve (11-for-33) and Yuli Gurriel (12-for-30) bring eight-game hitting streaks into the series finale for Houston, which is 30-19 at home this season.

TV: 2:10 p.m. ET, MLB Network, AT&T SportsNet-Southwest (Houston)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Athletics RH Trevor Cahill (1-2, 2.77 ERA) vs. Astros RH Charlie Morton (11-2, 2.83)

Cahill (Achilles) is expected to come off the disabled list to make his first start since June 2, when he yielded four runs over 4 2/3 innings of a no-decision at Kansas City. The 30-year-old Californian has recorded five quality starts in his eight outings this year, registering 47 strikeouts and 11 walks over 48 2/3 frames. One of those quality starts came in Houston on April 29, when he permitted three earned runs over six innings of an 8-4 loss that dropped him to 1-1 lifetime against the Astros.

Morton managed to post his 11th victory on Saturday despite allowing five runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Chicago White Sox. The 34-year-old native of New Jersey had strung together four straight quality starts before that outing and has totaled 13 in 18 games this year. Davis is 3-for-11 with a pair of homers against Morton, who is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in two career outings versus Oakland and 8-1 with a 2.66 mark in 11 starts at home this season.

WALK-OFFS

1. Houston 3B Alex Bregman is 5-for-13 with two solo homers in the series and has matched his career high with 19 blasts this year.

2. Oakland OF Stephen Piscotty, who has homered in four of his last five games, left Wednesday’s contest with a wrist contusion suffered when he was hit by a pitch.

3. Astros DH Evan Gattis, who leads the team with 62 RBIs, is hitless in his last 14 at-bats.

PREDICTION: Astros 5, Athletics 2

Preview: Diamondbacks at Rockies
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

The Colorado Rockies evened their three-game set with the Arizona Diamondbacks in a big way and aim for their fourth straight series victory when they host their National League West rivals for the rubber match on Thursday afternoon. The Rockies avenged a series-opening 5-3 setback with a 19-2 triumph thanks in part to five home runs, including one by starting pitcher German Marquez.

Carlos Gonzalez went deep twice to reach double digits in homers for the 10th consecutive season, drove in six runs and scored four while Ian Desmond was one of three players to notch three hits for the Rockies, who saw 10 of their 19 hits go for extra bases. Desmond homered and recorded five RBIs, matching the total from his previous 12 games. The Diamondbacks registered only six hits and actually owned a 1-0 lead before going on to suffer their first loss in 10 contests at Coors Field and second in 10 overall road games. Paul Goldschmidt put Arizona ahead in the first inning with his 21st blast of the year, giving him 10 RBIs in as many contests this month.

TV: 3:10 p.m. ET, FS Arizona

PITCHING MATCHUP: Diamondbacks LH Robbie Ray (3-1, 5.23 ERA) vs. Rockies LH Kyle Freeland (8-6, 3.18)

After giving a strong performance in his return from an oblique injury, Ray has struggled in his last two outings, surrendering 10 runs on 13 hits - five homers - and five walks over 9 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old Tennessean escaped with a no-decision against San Diego on Saturday after yielding four runs on four hits - three blasts - and four walks in 4 1/3 frames. Ray, who owns a 2.78 ERA on the road as opposed to a ghastly 7.97 mark at home, improved to 3-3 in 10 career starts versus Colorado in his season debut on March 30 despite being tagged for seven runs and seven hits - three homers - over five innings.

Freeland had his streak of six straight outings of six or more innings snapped at Seattle on Saturday as he lasted only five and came away with a no-decision despite allowing just one run on five hits and four walks. The 25-year-old native of Denver has worked at least six frames in 12 of his last 14 turns after failing to reach that plateau in three of his first four outings this year. Freeland fell to 1-2 with a 4.74 ERA in four career starts against Arizona on June 10, when he surrendered four runs on four hits and as many walks in six innings.

WALK-OFFS

1. Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado entered Wednesday tied with Milwaukee's Jesus Aguilar for the National League lead with 23 home runs.

2. Arizona's pitching staff took a hit in more ways than one on Wednesday as RHP Shelby Miller exited the loss with tightness in his right elbow while LHP T.J. McFarland left with a stiff neck.

3. Colorado activated RHP Bryan Shaw (calf) from the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday and optioned Jerry Vasto to Triple-A Albuquerque while fellow LHP Zac Rosscup was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

PREDICTION: Rockies 7, Diamondbacks 2

Preview: Phillies at Orioles
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

The Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles failed to unleash any semblance of offense as they were thwarted in their bids to win their respective four-game series on Wednesday. After losing for just the fourth time in 14 outings, the Phillies (51-40) will look to get back on track on Thursday as they visit the Orioles (26-67) in the makeup game of a rainout on May 15.

Cesar Hernandez recorded his second multi-hit performance of the series against the New York Mets in Wednesday's 3-0 setback in 10 innings. Nick Williams also had a hit to boost his total to 13 to go along with seven RBIs and six runs scored in July for Philadelphia, which is 3-0 against Baltimore this season and 8-4 in interleague play. The Orioles' bid to take three of four from the New York Yankees went up in smoke, as the latter evened the season series at five wins apiece with an emphatic 9-0 romp on Wednesday. Baltimore's Jonathan Schoop had a double to extend his hitting streak to 10 games, during which he is 17-for-41 with two homers and six doubles.

TV: 6:05 p.m. ET, NBCS Philadelphia, MASN2 (Baltimore)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Phillies RH Nick Pivetta (5-7, 4.62 ERA) vs. Orioles RH Kevin Gausman (4-6, 4.11)

Pivetta has struggled mightily in his last two starts, as he allowed three homers in a seven-run performance over 1 2/3 innings versus Washington on June 29 before permitting three runs on five hits over 2 2/3 frames at Pittsburgh on Friday. The 25-year-old British Columbia native pitched significantly better against Baltimore on May 16, yielding one solo homer among two hits while striking out 11 in seven innings of a 4-1 triumph. Adam Jones went deep in the first inning before Pivetta got into a groove, retiring 12 straight batters.

Gausman breezed into the fifth inning in his last outing before allowing three runs to effectively end his afternoon with a no-decision at Minnesota. The 27-year-old has been victimized by the home-run ball, having been taken deep in each of his last four starts and 18 times in as many appearances this season. Carlos Santana is 2-for-7 with a pair of doubles and three walks versus Gausman, who will face Philadelphia for the first time in his career.

WALK-OFFS

1. Philadelphia 3B Maikel Franco is 4-for-10 with a walk against Baltimore this season.

2. Orioles SS Manny Machado, who is just 1-for-10 versus the Phillies in 2018, is 4-for-8 with three extra-base hits (two homers, one double) in his last two games.

3. Philadelphia RHP Aaron Nola will move up a day in the rotation to draw the start on Saturday versus Miami as a means to be available to pitch in the All-Star Game.

PREDICTION: Phillies 4, Orioles 3

Preview: Brewers at Pirates
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

The Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates will be ready for the All-Star break by the time they’re done with this week’s series. The National League Central rivals clash Thursday in Pittsburgh for the first of five games over four days heading into the break.


The five-game set will continue a taxing week for the Brewers, who went to extra frames twice in their three-game series at Miami - including a 5-4 loss in 12 innings Wednesday. Milwaukee’s bullpen had to work overtime in the finale after starter Freddy Peralta lasted only 3 2/3 innings. Pittsburgh has won three of its last four games after blanking Washington 2-0 on Wednesday. The Pirates have claimed three of five meetings with the first-place Brewers this season, outscoring Milwaukee 21-12.

TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, FS Wisconsin (Milwaukee), AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh


PITCHING MATCHUP: Brewers LH Wade Miley (1-0, 1.42 ERA) vs. Pirates RH Jameson Taillon (5-7, 4.05)

After his second lengthy stint on the disabled list, Miley is ready to return from a strained right oblique and make his third start for the Brewers. The 31-year-old missed the first month of the season with a groin injury and went to the 60-day disabled list after leaving his second outing in the first inning. Miley is 2-2 with a 3.79 ERA in seven starts against the Pirates, but he hasn’t beaten them since 2013.

Taillon had a couple of rough outings early in the season, but he has posted a 3.51 ERA across his last eight outings with five quality starts over that stretch. The 26-year-old allowed three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a tough-luck loss against Philadelphia on Saturday. Taillon is 1-4 with a 3.70 ERA in eight starts against the Brewers, including a loss and a no-decision this season.


WALK-OFFS

1. Brewers 1B Jesus Aguilar, who was named to the All-Star team Wednesday after winning the Final Vote, is 9-for-23 with three doubles, four homers and 11 RBIs over his past six games.

2. Pittsburgh CF Starling Marte is 12-for-26 with two homers and six RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak.

3. Milwaukee CF Lorenzo Cain is 6-for-13 in three games since returning from the disabled list and has recorded multiple hits in each of the last two.


PREDICTION: Brewers 5, Pirates 3

Preview: Yankees at Indians
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

One of the best pitching matchups of the first half of the season will be center stage when the Cleveland Indians host the New York Yankees on Thursday for the opener of their four-game series. Cleveland sends two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber to the mound to face fellow All-Star Luis Severino, leading off the set between American League heavyweights.

Severino, who has recorded a major league-high 14 wins, takes on an Indians offense that is coming off a 19-4 victory over Cincinnati on Wednesday that snapped a four-game losing streak and improved the AL Central leaders to 29-17 at home. All-Star Jose Ramirez belted a pair of homers, giving him three in two days and 27 on the season - one shy of major-league leader J.D. Martinez of Boston. The Yankees avoided losing a series against the major league-worst Baltimore Orioles with a 9-0 victory on Wednesday as Greg Bird led the way with his first career grand slam - one of three blasts by New York. Slugger Giancarlo Stanton added four hits and two RBIs for the Yankees and is 10-for-23 over his last five contests, raising his season batting average to .276.

TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, MLB Network, YES (New York), SportsTime Ohio (Cleveland)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Yankees RH Luis Severino (14-2, 2.12 ERA) vs. Indians RH Corey Kluber (12-4, 2.49)

Severino allowed three runs and five hits - two homers - over five innings at Toronto on Saturday but still was able to record his fifth consecutive victory. That outing was one of just five non-quality starts in 19 appearances for the 24-year-old Dominican, who has registered 143 strikeouts over 123 1/3 frames this year. Ramirez is 3-for-10 with a pair of homers versus Severino, who is 2-1 with a 2.49 ERA in four career regular-season starts against the Indians.

Kluber was unable to post his 13th win last time out despite tossing seven scoreless innings against Oakland - his 17th quality start in 19 outings. The 32-year-old native of Alabama, who is 7-1 with a 1.43 ERA in 10 starts at home this season, has registered 123 strikeouts over 126 1/3 frames while limiting opponents to a .207 batting average. Brett Gardner is just 4-for-19 with a homer versus Kluber, who is 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA in seven career regular-season starts against the Yankees.

WALK-OFFS

1. New York SS Didi Gregorius (9-for-26) and OF Aaron Judge (8-for-24) both are riding six-game hitting streaks.

2. Ramirez needs one stolen base to become the second Cleveland player to record at least 20 homers and 20 steals before the All-Star break.

3. The Yankees are 3-0 against the Indians this season after losing five of seven regular-season matchups last year.

PREDICTION: Indians 4, Yankees 2

Preview: Blue Jays at Red Sox
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price will try to rebound from back-to-back rocky outings when he takes on the visiting Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday in the opener of a four-game series. Price was rocked for eight runs over 3 1/3 innings at Yankee Stadium two turns ago and failed to find a soft landing spot in Kansas City on Saturday in an erratic outing that saw him hit three batters in one inning and fail to complete five.

"To give up that lead the way I gave it up today, to not be able to get through five innings, that's tough," Price told reporters. "My teammates really picked me up tonight, that's huge. I'm struggling right now, searching." Price's team is having no such issues and matched its longest winning streak of the season at nine straight with a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday. J.D. Martinez drove in two more runs to bump his major league-leading total to 79 as Boston moved 36 games over .500 (65-29) for the first time since Oct. 1, 1978. The Blue Jays fell to 3-6 in July with a 9-5 loss at Atlanta on Wednesday and they are 2-7 against the Red Sox in 2018.

TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, Sportsnet, TVA (Toronto), NESN (Boston)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Blue Jays LH J.A. Happ (10-5, 4.44 ERA) vs. Red Sox LH David Price (9-6, 4.44)

Happ earned his first career All-Star nod but is limping toward the break after giving up 13 runs across 8 1/3 innings over his last two starts. He walked a season-high six and served up two home runs in an ugly 2 2/3-inning outing against the New York Yankees on Saturday. The 35-year-old struck out 10 Red Sox hitters in seven dominant innings in an April 24 encounter to improve to 7-3 with a 3.09 ERA in 18 career meetings (17 starts).

Price allowed a career-high five home runs in the loss to the Yankees and has given up nine over his last four outings. He was unable to finish six innings in two earlier matchups with the Blue Jays this year but is 19-3 with a 2.46 ERA in his career against Toronto. Devon Travis (5-for-14, one home run) is one of the few Blue Jays hitters to have some success against Price, who is 4-2 with a 3.63 ERA at home in 2018.

WALK-OFFS

1. Red Sox RF Mookie Betts is hitting .421 and has 11 runs scored during a nine-game hitting streak.

2. Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is 8-for-18 with three home runs, five RBIs and five runs scored during a five-game hitting streak.

3. Boston optioned LHP Jalen Beeks to Triple-A Pawtucket and recalled LHP Robby Scott.

PREDICTION: Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 4

Preview: Nationals at Mets
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

Max Scherzer will make his last start before the All-Star Game when he leads the Washington Nationals (46-46) into Citi Field on Thursday for the opener of a four-game series against the New York Mets (37-53). The three-time Cy Young Award winner bounced back from being shut out in three of his previous five starts to post his first win since June 5 in Saturday's 18-4 romp versus Miami.

"Consistency is the name of the game. The one day we hit, we score a lot. One day, we don't," said Washington manager Dave Martinez, who saw his offense go limp as it was blanked for the ninth time since the start of June in Wednesday's 2-0 setback versus Pittsburgh. The skidding Nationals have dropped 11 of their last 16 to fall back to .500 and reside 5 1/2 games out of first place in the National League East. New York also has struggled mightily with its offense, as it entered Wednesday's contest with eight runs in its previous five games and labored through nine scoreless innings before Brandon Nimmo's walk-off three-run homer in a 3-0 victory versus Philadelphia. Nimmo's blast accounted for the Mets' second walk-off win of the four-game series against the Phillies and third in the first seven contests of their 11-game homestand.

TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, MASN (Washington), SNY (New York)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Nationals RH Max Scherzer (11-5, 2.33 ERA) vs. Mets LH Steven Matz (4-6, 3.31)

Scherzer allowed a season-high three homers and recorded a campaign-worst three strikeouts in Saturday's resounding victory over the Marlins. The 33-year-old will tune up for the Midsummer Classic versus the Mets, against whom he is 8-4 with a 2.23 ERA and 0.86 WHIP while limiting the club to a .180 batting average. Jose Bautista (9-for-20) and Jose Reyes (10-for-29) have feasted off Scherzer, however.

Matz suffered the hard-luck loss on Saturday after allowing one run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings of a 3-0 setback versus Tampa Bay. The 27-year-old has reduced his ERA by over a full run (4.42 to 3.31) in his last nine starts while working at least five innings in each of his last seven trips to the mound. Matz recorded a pair of no-decisions against Washington in April, permitting four runs on six hits in nine innings.

WALK-OFFS

1. Washington RF Bryce Harper is hitless in six of his last eight outings, going 4-for-25 with 10 strikeouts in that span.

2. New York SS Amed Rosario is 5-for-7 with three extra-base hits and three runs scored in his last two contests.

3. Nationals CF Adam Eaton went 6-for-11 with two RBIs in his past three games.

PREDICTION: Nationals 3, Mets 2

Preview: Rays at Twins
Gracenote
Jul 11, 2018

The Tampa Bay Rays have won five in a row and are a season-high four games over .500 as they head to Minnesota to open a four-game series against the Twins on Thursday night. The Rays will look to make it six straight behind ace Blake Snell, who could have some extra motivation after he was snubbed for the American League All-Star team.

Snell, who beat the Twins with seven innings of one-run ball on April 21, was a stunning omission in the All-Star balloting -- the left-hander is second in the AL in both ERA (2.09) and wins (12). C.J. Cron hit a three-run homer Wednesday as Tampa Bay completed a three-game home sweep of Detroit to improve to 14-4 over its last 18. Minnesota kicked off its 11-game homestand by sweeping four from majors-worst Baltimore before taking two of three from another last-place club in Kansas City. Twins second baseman Brian Dozier has gone deep in back-to-back days and has three homers and eight RBIs during a six-game hitting streak.

TV: 8:10 p.m. ET, MLB Network, FS Sun (Tampa Bay), FS North (Minnesota)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rays LH Blake Snell (12-4, 2.09 ERA) vs. Twins RH Kyle Gibson (3-6, 3.59)

Snell blanked the New York Mets on six hits over 7 1/3 innings last time out to extend his winning streak to four straight starts -- a span in which he has permitted only two runs and 14 hits while striking out 35 in 28 2/3 innings. He is 8-1 over his last 10 starts and has allowed two runs or fewer in nine of those outings. Dozier, linked to trade rumors, is 4-for-8 with a home run against Snell.

Gibson halted a three-start winless drought by giving up three runs on four hits over a season high-tying seven innings versus Baltimore on Saturday. Although he has won only twice since his season debut on March 31, he has permitted three earned runs or fewer in eight of his last nine starts. Gibson fell to 1-5 with a 6.81 ERA versus the Rays after a 10-1 loss to Snell in April.

WALK-OFFS

1. Tampa Bay is 12-3 against AL Central foes.

2. Twins 1B/DH Joe Mauer is 10-for-22 during a five-game hitting streak and needs one double to become the franchise's all-time leader.

3. Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-5 on Wednesday to run his hitting streak to five games.

PREDICTION: Rays 4, Twins 2

Preview: Mariners at Angels
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

The Seattle Mariners made their three-run lead stand a day after squandering one and attempt to post their second series win over the Los Angeles Angels in less than two weeks when they visit their American League West rivals on Thursday for the rubber match of their three-game set. Seattle saw its 3-0 lead turn into a 9-3 loss in the series opener but bounced back Wednesday with a 3-0 victory.

David Freitas went 2-for-2 with his first major-league homer - a solo shot - while Marco Gonzales combined with two relievers on a two-hitter for the Mariners, who took two of three from Los Angeles at home from July 3-5. Seattle slugger Nelson Cruz delivered a two-run single in the triumph to match the RBI total from his previous 10 contests. Andrelton Simmons and Mike Trout accounted for their team's offense with singles in the fourth inning as the Angels fell to 3-2 on their six-game homestand. Trout is riding a four-game hitting streak during which he has gone 7-for-15 while Simmons went 4-for-9 in the first two games of the series.

TV: 10:07 p.m. ET, ROOT Northwest (Seattle), FS West (Los Angeles)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners LH James Paxton (8-3, 3.49 ERA) vs. Angels LH Tyler Skaggs (6-5, 2.64)

Paxton is coming off his first home loss since his season debut on March 31, a setback against Colorado on Saturday in which he yielded four runs and seven hits over seven innings. The 29-year-old Canadian fell one strikeout shy of his third consecutive double-digit output and eighth overall this season. Paxton has made 11 career starts versus Los Angeles, going 4-2 with a 2.07 ERA and 0.88 WHIP while limiting the Angels to a .169 batting average.

Skaggs is expected to return from a right adductor strain that landed him on the disabled list and make his first start since June 30 at Baltimore. The 26-year-old Californian allowed two runs - one earned - and four hits over five innings against the Orioles but did not factor in the decision. Skaggs is 1-2 with a 4.63 ERA in 10 career starts versus the Mariners, including a no-decision at Seattle on May 5 in which he gave up two runs over 5 1/3 frames.

WALK-OFFS

1. The Angels are 4-7 against the Mariners thus far in 2018 and have scored a total of two runs in their last three losses in the season series.

2. Seattle SS Jean Segura won the Final Vote for this year's All-Star Game and will make his second career trip to the Midsummer Classic.

3. Los Angeles placed Garrett Richards (elbow), who may be headed for Tommy John surgery, on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday and recalled fellow RHP Deck McGuire from Triple-A Salt Lake.

PREDICTION: Mariners 8, Angels 2

Preview: Dodgers at Padres
Gracenote
Jul 12, 2018

One day after being named to his first All-Star team, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling takes the mound Thursday in the finale of a four-game series against the host San Diego Padres. Stripling joined teammates Matt Kemp and Kenley Jansen on the National League roster after being named as a replacement for St. Louis’ Miles Mikolas, who is pitching on Sunday and will be unavailable for Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic.

Kenta Maeda pitched into the sixth inning and struck out nine batters in Wednesday’s 4-2 victory as the Dodgers won for the seventh time in 10 games. Max Muncy lost the All-Star Final Vote contest to Milwaukee’s Jesus Aguilar but recorded two hits in the win and is 12-for-36 with four homers over his last 10 contests. San Diego fell 15 games under .500 despite another strong effort from Austin Hedges, who notched two hits and is 9-for-21 with two blasts and five RBIs in his last six starts. Wil Myers hit six home runs over a four-game stretch for the Padres before going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Wednesday’s loss.

TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, SportsNet LA (Los Angeles), FS San Diego

PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers RH Ross Stripling (7-2, 2.22 ERA) vs. Padres RH Tyson Ross (5-7, 4.41)

Stripling started the season in the Dodgers’ bullpen but has been the team’s most consistent starter with a stellar 103-to-13 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 89 1/3 innings. The 28-year-old recorded his team-high seventh win on Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels, allowing one run and three hits over six frames. Jose Pirela is 5-for-6 with a home run against Stripling, who is 2-3 with a 3.04 ERA in nine career games (three starts) versus San Diego.

Ross lost his fourth straight decision on Saturday as he was battered by Arizona for eight runs and seven hits in two innings. “The All-Star break is coming at a nice time with just one more start before the break,” manager Andy Green told reporters. “He’s thrown some innings this year, but the velocity is there, the expectation for good outings is still there.” The 31-year-old Ross is 0-7 with a 3.49 ERA in 11 career games (nine starts) against the Dodgers.

WALK-OFFS

1. Muncy will face the Chicago Cubs’ Javier Baez in the first round of next Tuesday’s Home Run Derby.

2. San Diego has scored fewer than three runs in five of its last nine games.

3. The Dodgers claimed LHP Zac Rosscup off waivers from Colorado and designated LHP Edward Paredes for assignment.

PREDICTION: Dodgers 7, Padres 3
