Hyun-Jin Ryu has experienced more success against the San
Diego Padres than any other major league team Wei-Yin

, and the Los Angeles Dodgers hope the left-hander
continues that trend Sunday in the series finale at Dodger Stadium.The Dodgers
(86-69) have a 1 1/2-game lead over the Colorado Rockies for first place in the
National League West.After the Dodgers conclude the series with the Padres
(62-93), they’ll play their final six games on the road.Article continues below
...Colorado (84-70) wraps up a nine-game road trip at the Arizona Diamondbacks
on Sunday and plays its final seven games at home.Ryu is 6-1 in nine career
starts against San Diego with a 2.52 ERA. He won both outings against the Padres
this season, mainly because of his pitching, but he also benefited from
better-than-average offensive support in those wins.Ryu (5-3, 2.18 ERA) allowed
two runs and three hits in six innings and struck out a season-high nine batters
on April 16 in a 10-3 win in San Diego.After a groin injury in May sidelined Ryu
until August, he faced the Padres again Aug. 26 at Dodger Stadium and allowed
two runs (one earned) and scattered 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings of the 7-3 win.Ryu
went 0-2 in his next three starts with the losses coming against the New York
Mets and Cincinnati Reds, two teams far out of playoff contention.He bounced
back to throw seven shutout innings against Colorado on Monday in an 8-2 win
that moved the Dodgers ahead of the Rockies for first place.“To start the year,
(Ryu) was throwing the ball really well and he just has that ability to control
the heartbeat and make pitches,” manager Dave Roberts told reporters after the
win over Colorado. “You have a guy who can get lefties and righties
out ,
can really throw a strike when he needs to. There’s a lot of trust there, and
Hyun-Jin’s earned it.”Padres third baseman Wil Myers is 4-for-9 in his career
against Ryu with a home run.The Padres will send left-hander Joey Lucchesi to
the mound for the 25th start of his rookie season.Lucchesi (8-8, 3.74) lost his
two starts against the Dodgers in 2018, both in San Diego.He gave up three runs
and five hits in five innings on May 4, but four Los Angeles pitchers combined
to throw a no-hitter in the 4-0 victory.Lucchesi allowed three runs (two earned)
and six hits in four innings of a 4-2 loss to the Dodgers on July 11.Lucchesi
will be looking to win back-to-back decisions for the first time since April,
when he went 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA. “I’m a competitor, man,” Lucchesi told
after the win. “I always go out there just to give my team the best chance to
win. That’s always how I’ve been as a character and a human being. I always try
to fight for my boys.” Jeff Gross/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox overcame a 4-0
deficit with nine runs in the final three innings to defeat the Los Angeles
Dodgers, 9-6 Cameron

, in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday
evening.Boston is now up three games to one and has a chance to clinch its
fourth championship in 15 seasons with a victory on Sunday night. Game time is
Sunday at 8:15 p.m. ET, with Fox televising the game live from Los Angeles.L.A.
is a slight -125 favorite (bet $125 to win $100) to send the series back to
Fenway Park, per OddsShark, and the over/under total is seven runs. Two
left-handed aces will go against each other, as Clayton Kershaw gets the call
for Los Angeles, while David Price does the same for Boston.Chris Sale was in
line to make his second start of the series after starting Game 1, but manager
Alex Cora opted to go with Price on three days' rest from his last start.In Game
1, Kershaw threw four full frames but allowed five earned runs in an eventual
8-4 loss. Price, on the other hand Lewis

, went six innings and allowed only two earned runs
in the Sox's Game 2 win, as well as coming on in relief for two-thirds of an
inning in the Sox's Game 3 loss.Though Kershaw, in particular, didn't show it
his last time out, these two are both capable of trading zeroes in a classic
pitcher's duel.Here's a look at the most current World Series MVP props (via

Max Muncy: 30-1 World Series MVP NotesRed Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez
leads the way at 12-5. The slugger delivered run-scoring hits in his first two
series at-bats, but he's had just one hit in his 12 at-bats since.That lonesome
hit was a big one, though, as a two-run single in the fifth inning of Game 2
turned a 2-2 game into a 4-2 lead for the Sox. That score didn't change as
Boston took a 2-0 series lead.The issue with picking an MVP for the Red Sox is
that the team has had different heroes in each of their three wins.Left fielder
Andrew Benintendi was the star in Game 1 with four hits and three runs.Martinez,
outfielder Mookie Betts (three hits and the game-winning run) and starting
pitcher David Price (six innings ,
two earned runs, a win) tag-teamed Boston's Game 2 effort.And the clear Game 4
hero was first baseman Steve Pearce, who hit the game-tying home run in the
eighth inning before a bases-clearing double turned a nail-biting 5-4 advantage
into a (somewhat) comfortable 8-4 lead.If one of those aforementioned hitters
posts another strong outing en route to a Sox win, then expect that person to
win the World Series MVP. In other words, if Martinez smacks a 450-foot dinger
off Kershaw Sunday, he'll likely be lifting the trophy.The sneaky bet here might
be Price, however.If he posts another excellent start and wins his second game
of the series, then how can you not give the MVP to him? The only way is if
someone has a Reggie Jackson-esque game and delivers a few home runs and a bunch
of runs batted in.On the Dodgers' side, infielder Max Muncy at 30-1 is an
intriguing bet if you think L.A. can come back ,
if only for his game-ending home run in the Dodgers' 18-inning marathon victory
over the Red Sox on Friday night. Muncy has a head start on his teammates in
that regard, as he helped keep the Dodgers' hopes alive.Those hopes are bleak
right now, however, as L.A. needs to win three straight (including two in
Boston) to take the World Series. Such a comeback wouldn't be unprecedented,
however, as the Chicago Cubs came back from down 3-1 against the Cleveland
Indians with a home victory before two road wins in the 2016 World Series.
