The highly-anticipated series between the Dodgers and Padres lived up to the hype. Los Angeles took 2 games out of 3, but San Diego came through in a big way to take the final game of the series.
It was also the first time that Blake Snell got to face the Dodgers since that fateful day in October with the Rays. And while it took him a while to settle in, the former Cy Young winner locked down Los Angeles’ hitters after allowing a CT3 homerun.
After his start, Snell was asked what it was like getting to pitch in front of fans in San Diego. The southpaw was very happy with the atmosphere and weather, but he did have one complaint about the Dodgers’ Trevor Bauer.
There was one thing, because Bauer, he be digging on that mound a lot. Oh my god it was a crazy-it looked like something just crashed on top of the mound. It was just the biggest hole. So Bauer, we gotta work on that. I know you gotta get grip on the mound or whatever, but man my foot was killing me.
Bauer later jokingly responded on Twitter telling Snell that it was him that dug out the hole. Regardless, seeing teh back and forth between the Dodgers and Padres all season long should be a blast. Especially after how intense the first series of the year got.
The Dodgers will head up to Seattle to play a 2-game set against the Mariners starting tomorrow. After that, they head back home to take on the Padres in a 4-game series. Get ready everyone, this one should be fun.
