How to watch today's LA Dodgers vs San Diego Padres MLB game: Live stream, TV channel and start time

With their cold-weather road trip through Chicago and Minneapolis done and dusted, the Los Angeles Dodgers (10-5) return to the home comforts of Dodger Stadium this weekend. They will take on the San Diego Padres (7-8) in a three-game series as part of a nine-game homestand.

The Dodgers are coming off a 3-2 defeat to the Minnesota Twins last time out, as they were unable to complete the three-game sweep. They are meeting expectations, though, having only dropped one series and winning four straight home games.

The Padres are on the road where they are 1-2 on the young season after a series loss to the Giants. They have not found a groove yet this season and are off to a shaky opening few weeks. They have recorded just one series win so far.

Below, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about the upcoming Dodgers vs Padres game.
