SAN DIEGO (AP) — It’s opening night in San Diego as the Padres entertain the Dodgers. The game doesn’t mark the opening of the Major League season as that took place a week ago in Australia when the Dodgers took two from the Diamondbacks.

On the mound tonight for the Dodgers will be Hyun-Jin Ryu (hee-YUHN’-jihn YOO) against Andrew Cashner for the Padres.

Padres miss Kershaw in season opener vs Dodgers

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres will miss $215 million man Clayton Kershaw in baseball’s North American opener Sunday night.

They’ll face pretty much the rest of the $235 million roster of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who sit atop baseball’s payroll perch and the NL West.

Padres third baseman Chase Headley says there’s a “healthy dislike” of the Dodgers, who won the NL West last year after going on a 42-8 run that began with a victory in San Diego on June 22.

With Kershaw missing this start because of an inflamed muscle in his back that landed him on the disabled list for the first time in his career, the Dodgers will turn to left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (1-0). The Padres will counter with right-hander Andrew Cashner.

The Padres have a relatively modest $90 million payroll.

Los Angeles is 2-0, having swept a series against Arizona in Sydney.
