In the National League West, the two top dogs are battling it out this Saturday in a quest for triumph. At the Dodger Stadium in the sunny state of California, the San Diego Padres are visiting the Los Angeles Dodgers following their last bout on July 4. In their last four-game series in July, Dodgers won three, but the Padres won their last match of the month. Now, a new player that has joined the Padres is stirring the pot. Will he be the one to dictate the trajectory of the match? 

 

Walking into the Dodger Stadium, the Padres will have been done with the Colorado Rockies with an expected sweep. They’ve also recently welcomed superstar Juan Soto, along with Josh Bell, and Brandon Drury. It was a fruitful match with 9-1 in favor of the Padres with Soto on the team. While he technically wasn’t the starring player in that game, his presence made a difference in morale and motivation. Their last game was even said to have an electric atmosphere according to the goers. This also proves that the Padres are vicious regardless, that their success isn’t dependent on Soto, but rather he’s a tool to achieve better success. He’s a brilliant addition to an already brilliant team.  

 

Steady at home, the Dodgers are also one victory away from sweeping the San Francisco Giants in their four-game series. Presently dominating the majors across the board, they’re two losses ahead of their closest rival, the New York Yankees. It’s no mystery that they’ve been a regular frontrunner for majors, but it still doesn’t guarantee a 100% success rate, of course. If we take a look at their probable pitcher, Andrew Heaney, next to the Padres’ Mike Clevinger, he has an outstanding ERA of .77 while Clevinger immediately seems less impressive with his 3.13. With statistics and numbers alone, they have the upper hand. However, their disadvantage right now is how they failed to acquire Soto, one of the most prized prospects of this season, by letting the San Diego Padres outbid them. 

 

Our baseball senses tell us that the San Diego Padres will ultimately come out on top. We have Soto to thank for that but not solely because of his abilities per , but his effect on the team. There’s also the incentive of bragging rights of winning against the MLB’s tyrant. That and the momentum they’re engulfed in right now, it’s a clean, supercharged win for the Padres, and we can’t wait to see it.  

 

10:10 AM (PST), Saturday, 6 August 2022. Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA.
