Mike Bolsinger (2-0, 1.04) vs. Ian Kennedy (2-3, 6.75).
What's up with the Padres' pitching staff? They're third in the majors in strikeouts (366), but 25th in ERA (4.26). And when you strip out their suspect defense, they've got the second-worst FIP (4.41). (xFIP is better at 3.67, but I'm still trying to figure out the difference. Maybe some big brain can explain in the comments.)
But nothing cures bad pitching like bad offense, which the Dodgers still are evincing despite Joc Pederson's corkscrew-swing game-winning home run last night. If something's gotta give when two slumping teams meet, then last night it only gave a little. Let's get more "give" tonight*, boys.
*I have no idea what this means.
