Though the Padres have been out of the race for a while, they are hotter presently than the Dodgers, losers of eight of their last 10.  Side with San Diego in Los Angeles.

Nothing much has really gone right for the Padres this season and you know that the team can't wait for this season to end.

San Diego has been playing better recenty and has now won five of their last six games, all of those against NL West opponents. The Padres are 14-5 in Chris Young's last 19 road starts vs. a team with a losing record.

With last night's win the Dodgers are now 2-8 in their last 10 games. The Dodgers send former Padre Greg Maddux to the mound tonight and they have lost his two starts. Los Angeles has lost three of the last four meetings between the clubs. Play on San Diego.
