Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: Padres @ Dodgers May 15, 2019: Maeda for the sweep
The first place Dodgers (28-16) go for the two-game sweep of the Padres (22-20) on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium as they wrap up the homestand. The Boys in Blue have the best home record in baseball (18-6), and they're 12-5 vs. NL West opponents.
Kenta Maeda (4-2, 4.03 ERA, 4.41 FIP) takes the place of Rich Hill for the Wednesday home game vs. San Diego. Hill is pushed back to the weekend series against the Reds in Cincinnati. Maeda looks to build off his last gem of a start when he one-hit the Nationals over six scoreless innings on Cinco de Mayo.
Dodger Blue: Preview: Dodgers Go For 2-Game Sweep Over Padres
The Los Angeles Dodgers continued their strong play at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night, earning a 6-3 victory over the San Diego Padres to improve to 28-16 on the season. They now take the field on Wednesday night looking to complete a two-game sweep of the Padres and close out the homestand with a 7-2 record.

Dodger Blue: Dodgers News: Clayton Kershaw 'Felt Alright' Against Padres, Compliments Manny Machado As 'Special Talent'
The Los Angeles Dodgers didn't make much, if any, effort to re-sign Manny Machado over the winter, and while they may not necessarily regret the decision, their loss has been the San Diego Padres' gain in head-to-head matchups thus far.
When the Dodgers and Padres first met this season, Machado hit three home runs through the first two games at Petco Park. It was enough for Dodgers manager Dave Roberts to joke that perhaps Padres skipper would rest Machado in the series finale.
He remained in the lineup but went hitless in the Padres' walk-off win.
Dodger Blue: Dodgers Highlights: Joc Pederson Hits 100th Career Home Run, Cody Bellinger Clubs 15th In Win Over Chris Paddack & Padres
Much of the talk around baseball so far this season has been the play of the up-and-coming San Diego Padres and their young ace Chris Paddack, who is the National League Rookie of the Year favorite. The Los Angeles Dodgers welcomed them to town on Tuesday and reminded why they are the defending six-time NL West division champions, earning a 6-3 victory at Dodger Stadium.
Paddack had arguably the worst start of his Major League career in what was his first outing against the Dodgers. He allowed five hits and six runs (three earned) in just 4.
SignOnSanDiego.com: Dodgers use home runs to handle Paddack, Padres
LOS ANGELES --
It was an inning unlike any Chris Paddack had endured.
At the start of it, the Padres rookie had not allowed the Dodgers a hit. When it was over, he had allowed more runs than he had in any previous game and half as many as he had all season.
The kid with "Relentless" stitched in cursive on his glove faced a collection of hitters that are very much that.
The Dodgers beat the Padres 6-3, pouncing on a rare Manny Machado error and a rare night in which Paddack was not entirely sharp.
Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: Dodgers 6, Padres 3: Joc & Cody power Dodgers to victory in dong duel
Following a rather disappointing series split against the Nationals, the Dodgers welcomed the Padres to a quick two-game set at Dodger Stadium. Facing a rookie phenom on the mound, the bats came prepared and knocked him around a bit to secure a 6-3 victory.
Chris Paddack had given up eight runs in his first seven starts to his career, but he surrendered six today in just 4.2 innings against the Dodgers.
The 3rd proved to be the difference making inning, as both Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger hit two-run homers, their 13th and 15th respectively.
