The Dodgers are going for a sweep of the Padres this afternoon, but they face a tough task in Blake Snell, a pitcher they have historically struggled against. Luckily, they have Max Scherzer on the mound, who has pitched his way into NL Cy Young Award contention.

Chris Taylor continues to be out with a nagging neck issue.
Chris Taylor’s neck issue has seen some improvement, Dave Roberts said, but he won’t be available again today. Said they will look for improvement over the next couple days, so no IL stint for now.— Fabian Ardaya (@FabianArdaya) September 12, 2021
Kenley Jansen will be out as well, but for a happy reason.
