The Los Angeles Dodgers look for consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 14 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense has been hit or miss lately, but they have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 73 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 31 RBI and Joc Pederson has 11 home runs. Mike Bolsinger takes the hill, and he’s 1-4 with a 5.76 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Bolsinger is 0-1 with a 4.67 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 3-8 in Andersons last 11 starts. The Dodgers are 10-4 in their last 14 vs. a team with a losing record and 1-7 in Bolsingers last 8 starts. The Brewers are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers continue to play solid ball on their home field and know they have to take advantage against a subpar and struggling Brewers club in order to make up ground in the standings. Anderson hasn't been great this season and LA's bats should be able to hit him. I like the Dodgers here.
