Dodgers vs. Padres Game XV chat

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers turn to Julio Urías after losing the opener to the Padres. He’s allowed seven runs in his last nine starts, and in two starts against San Diego this season the left-hander has allowed two total runs, winning both games.

Offense figure to be at a premium Saturday, since Blake Snell has never allowed more than two runs in any start against the Dodgers. Snell has a 1.99 career ERA against the Dodgers, including 12 strikeouts over five innings on July 1. The Dodgers did win that game, which perhaps provides the blueprint, force Snell to throw a lot of pitches, and get him out of the game one way or another.

Seems like a winning strategy.
