Dodgers @ Padres – May 12, 2024: Walker Buehler starts the series rubber match on Mother’s Day

After pulling ahead late yesterday to even the series at a game apiece, the Dodgers and Padres are setup for a rubber match between a pair of (former) aces in Walker Buehler and Yu Darvish.

Also, Happy Mother’s Day!

The biggest news, of course, is Shohei Ohtani‘s lower back tightness, which led to his early exit in yesterday’s game. His absence in the lineup today was expected and is said to be precautionary, but definitely something to monitor going forward.


Bobby Miller is progressing well.


Let’s even that season series.
