The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Dodgers have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Howie Kendrick leads LA with 124 hits and 49 RBI while Adrian Gonzalez and Jimmy Rollins have combined for 103 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won six of their last eight home games. Mat Latos takes the hill, and he’s 4-8 with a 4.67 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. Latos is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Reds are 7-21 in their last 28 vs. National League West and 29-65 in their last 94 road games. The Dodgers are 52-23 in their last 75 games as a home favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series. The Reds are 8-20 in the last 28 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers are starting to find their footing at home, and Latos has been pretty solid as of late, allowing three or less runs in five of his last six outings. I look for LA to keep rolling.
