The Dodgers are making a slight change to their pitching rotation tonight against the San Diego Padres. Jose De Leon was scheduled to pitch tonight, but now Kenta Maeda will be getting the start. De Leon will now be pitching tomorrow night.

Why September Baseball is the Best Baseball

Even though the Dodgers have already clinched the division, they are still battling for home field advantage in the playoffs. They are one game back of the NL East Champion Washington Nationals, so the team can’t sit back and relax just yet.

Maeda has similar pitching splits both at home and away, so the Dodgers seem to be more comfortable opening up the series with the consistent veteran.

The Dodgers (90-66) and Padres (66-90) have inverse records and the Dodgers have won the same number of away games (37) as the Padres have won at home.

In 2016, the head-to-head record is in the Dodgers favor 10-6, with L.A. going 4-2 in San Diego.

The Padres will have Paul Clemens starting on the mound for them. Clemens is 3-5 with a 4.48 ERA this season. The Dodgers haven’t faced Clemens much at all this season, so there isn’t much history between them.

Yasmani Grandal is the Dodgers’ main threat against San Diego. According to ESPN.com, Grandal has given Padres’ pitchers nightmares all season long. Grandal has a .410 average with 16 hits, 6 HRs, and 14 RBIs, in 40 at bats against San Diego.

Grandal had a career night against the Padres back in July when he had five hits including three HRs. Check out the highlights for that game here!

San Diego doesn’t have much to play for, but they can still be spoilers for the Dodgers home field dreams.

    Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Maria 21 from England,my boyfriend of a year just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity .

He will not disappoint you.This is his E-mail: [email protected] or Add him up on Whats-app: +2348071622464,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
