The Los Angeles Dodgers hope to end their road series with the Miami Marlins with a win on Sunday.
The goal of the Los Angeles Dodgers is to stay a few steps ahead of the Giants in the National League West. That didn’t happen Saturday with the Dodgers losing at Miami by a 3-2 count while the Giants won. Ace Clayton Kershaw gave up all three runs on seven hits while striking out nine but just one run was earned. The offense never got going on six hits with Justin Turner connecting on a solo jack while Adrian Gonzalez drove in Howie Kendrick. The Dodgers turn to Zack Greinke on the hill who faces the Marlins for the second time in 2015. Greinke has been in top form the past two times out with back to back shutouts on seven hits covering 13 innings.

The over is 37-9-5 in the last 51 meetings and is 16-5-2 in the last 23 meetings in Miami. The Dodgers are not a good road team and if Kershaw can lose then Greinke can so call this a lean…
