The Los Angeles Dodgers look for consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 15 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense continues to carry them, and they’ve won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 75 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 32 RBI and Joc Pederson has 12 home runs. Kenta Maeda takes the hill, and he’s 6-4 with a 2.75 ERA and 71 strikeouts this season. This will be Maeda’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 14-31 in their last 45 during game 4 of a series and 1-5 in Garzas last 6 starts. The Dodgers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in Maedas last 5 starts.
The Brewers appear to be back in one of their ugly funks and now have Garza on the hill, a guy with a ton of experience but hasn't pitched much this year. The only pick here is the Dodgers at home with the way both clubs are playing at the moment.
