5/4 (5:00 pm PT with #PadresLive)
5/5 (12:30 pm PT with #PadresLive)
HOW TO WATCH: FOX Sports San Diego or FOX Sports GO.
Player to Watch: Manny Machado
Manny Machado will face one of his former teams in the Dodgers, where he played an integral part in their run last season to the World Series.
At the plate, Machado enters this weekend sporting a .235/.318/.391 slashline on the season with a 94 wRC+. His history and track record suggest that he will get it going offensively before long.
Defensively, with the injury of Fernando Tatis Jr., Machado has slid in to the shortstop position almost effortlessly.
MANNY SAVES THE GAME!

Keep an eye on Machado this weekend, as there were signs in Atlanta that show that he is close to breaking out at the plate. It would certainly be a welcome sign for a Padres team that has been starving for offense as of late.
FOX Sports San Diego’s coverage of the series gets going on Friday at 6:30 pm PT.
The entire weekend series against the Dodgers is now SOLD OUT! Select seats are still available with purchase of a #Padres membership plan.
