Padres vs. Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. I’m just not trusting the Padres here with Yu Darvish pitching as I think the Dodgers have the far better lineup 1-9 to be able to take advantage of this matchup. James Paxton’s far from a world-beater, but he’s good enough here to get the Dodgers a win in this one. Give me Los Angeles.
