The Dodgers are back home looking to continue winning, opening a three-game weekend series with the Padres beginning Friday night at Dodger Stadium.

Winners of seven games in nine tries this year against the Padres, the Dodgers will send Rich Hill to the mound.

Since joining the Dodgers in 2016, Hill is a perfect 3-0 against the Friars. The lefty has allowed only one run over three starts in 18 innings while striking out 24 and walking six.

Hill is 4-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his last six starts with 48 strikeouts and 6 walks. The Dodgers have won all six of those starts dating back to the beginning of July.

The Padres own the fourth-worst National League record at 50-64, a whopping 31.0 games behind the Dodgers. San Diego has lost seven of their last 10 games with a 5.73 ERA as a team.

Clayton Richard will take the ball for San Diego having allowed 41 runs (36 earned) in his last eight starts. The left-hander is 1-2 with a 6.23 ERA against the Dodgers in 2017.

Opponents have more hits against Richard than any other pitcher in baseball. The lefty has given up 180 hits in 23 starts over 139 13 innings.

The Dodgers have won 32 of 47 games against the Padres since the start of the 2015 season.
