The Los Angeles Dodgers need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Dodgers have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Dodgers have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Adrian Gonzalez leads Los Angeles with 67 hits and 39 RBI while Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier have combined for 55 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers have split their last eight home games. Zack Greinke takes the hill, and he’s 5-1 with a 1.97 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Greinke is 9-4 with a 3.17 ERA and 71 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in Lynns last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 8-2 in their last 10 during game 4 of a series and 45-21 in Greinkes last 66 starts. The under is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
Greinke has been flat out great this season and is even harder to bet against at home. That's why I'm taking a chance with the runline here to give us more bang for our buck.
