Nearly a month into the season, the LA Dodgers are still the only team in the National League West with a winning record. No other division has four teams with losing records, though if the San Diego Padres can pull off an upset at Dodger Stadium this weekend, they'd pull level with their storied I-5 rivals.

You can watch a Padres vs Dodgers live stream easily in the US with Sling TV or from anywhere in the world with a VPN.

These foes have met already this season, splitting a two-game series right at the start of the campaign in Seoul. It marked the MLB debut of Yoshinobu Yamamoto, and it was rough going for the three-time NPB Pacific League MVP, as he allowed five runs.

But with his compatriot Shohei Ohtani an ever-present in the headlines, Yamamoto has quietly shown why everyone wanted his signature in the offseason. He's not conceded a run in his last 10 innings, taking 13 scalps in the process.

That was also a first MLB outing for youngster Jackson Merrill, who's given Padres fans plenty of reasons to cheer post-Juan Soto. What's more, their form on the road has been marginally better than their home form in the opening weeks, and, considering their strength of schedule, things could be looking up. 

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch a Padres vs Dodgers live stream anywhere in the world, no matter where you are.
