Soto, who has played two games for San Diego since being traded by the Washington Nationals, doubled, tripled and scored a run Thursday in a 7-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies.
The Dodgers completed a four-game sweep of the Giants on Thursday with a 5-3 victory at Oracle Park, their first four-win series in San Francisco since 1977.
The Dodgers will start right-hander Tony Gonsolin (12-1, 2.41 earned-run average) against San Diego left-hander Sean Manaea (6-5, 4.25 ERA). This is Manaea’s first season with the Padres after spending six years with the Oakland Athletics.
In his career, Gonsolin is 3-0 in five appearances against the Padres including four starts. His earned-run average is 1.73.
The Dodgers (72-33) lead the second-place Padres (61-47) by 12½ games in the National League West.
