Out west, the baseball season is hitting up and two rivals are playing a three-game series in San Diego. The San Diego Padres host the Los Angeles Dodgers for the second game of their three game series tonight at PETCO Park.

The Dodgers are having a fine season thus far and own a record of 24-12. Pitching in this game for the Dodgers will be Aaron Harang. He is 2-2 on the season with an ERA of 4.46. Harang pitched last season for the Padres and had a record of 14-7 before signing an offseason deal to play with the Dodgers.

Pitching for the Padres will be Edinson Volquez. Volquez is 2-2 on the season with an ERA of 2.79. He and Harang were teammates in Cincinnati from 2008 to 2010. Over his last four starts, Volquez is 2-0 with an ERA of just 1.42.

The Padres have only won four games in their last 20 contests against the Dodgers. Wednesday the Padres won game one of the series 4-2. Chase Headley had two hits including a homer and three runs batted in. This season Headley has hit three home runs and knocked in 11 runs against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are still without Matt Kemp their best offensive player and one of the best in the league as he is sidelined with an injury. With runners in scoring position, the Dodgers were 0-5 on the night and only had five hits in the entire game.

Don Mattingly the Dodgers’ manager said the team was not talented enough to get just five hits and win a game. The Padres can win their third straight with a win tonight and they have not accomplished that feat since September of last season.

The Padres are favored at -120 with the Dodgers at +110. The run total is sitting at 6.5. The Dodgers will win this game and the total will pay out to the OVER, as the Dodger bats will knock Volquez around.
