The Los Angeles Dodgers could use a win after losing six of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense continues to produce at a high level, and they’ve won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 72 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 31 RBI and Chase Utley has five home runs. Julio Urias takes the hill, and he’s 0-2 with a 5.82 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Urias’ first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 2-6 in their last 8 Friday games and 4-0 in Davies' last 4 starts. The Dodgers are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 15-7 in their last 22 vs. National League Central. The Brewers are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles.
Urias seems to be getting better and better the more he pitches and has an ERA of 2.25 at home. The Brewers are going to struggle to hit the kid and his nasty stuff. I'll take the Dodgers at home and the runline to avoid the insane juice.
