The Dodgers beat the Padres in extra innings last night, scoring the only run of the game on a bloop single by Freddie Freeman in the top of the 10th inning. It was L.A.’s 107th win of the season, setting a new franchise record for victories.
Tonight, the Dodgers will face the Padres for the last time in the regular season, looking to cap off a 14-5 season series with the little brothers down south.
Brusdar Graterol gets the “start” for the Dodgers today, tasked with getting Juan Soto and Manny Machado the first time through the order. Andrew Heaney will be the bulk guy, presumably coming in right after Graterol to allow him to get through four innings or so while only facing Machado once. This will be Graterol’s fourth time serving as the opener in his career.
The Padres will counter with an opener of their own, right-handed reliever Steven Wilson. Wilson is having an outstanding rookie season for the Padres, posting a 2.88 ERA in 50 innings pitched. Today would normally be Sean Manaea’s spot in the rotation, but he’s been bad this year and terrible against the Dodgers, so San Diego seems reluctant to throw him out to the wolves again. As of now, there’s no announcement on whether the Padres are going with an opener for Manaea or a full bullpen game.

Dodgers Player Props
FanDuel doesn’t have any odds listed for any particular players to homer, presumably because they have no idea who’s going to pitch and when. So we’ll just throw it out here: leadoff homer for Mookie Betts.
