We produced another winner on Friday as the LA Dodgers and San Diego Padres easily play under the total of 6 ½ runs as the game ends 2-1. It was another good outing by Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw who threw a solid six innings and the good LA bullpen threw three scoreless innings. On the Padres side Clayton Richard had another tough luck loss allowing two earned runs in 7 1/3rds innings against a Dodger hitting lineup that has been very anemic in recent games.
