The Los Angeles Dodgers are just trying to hold off San Francisco for the NL West crown. The Dodgers had won five in a row before cooling off in a 4-1 defeat at Miami on Friday night. LAD starter Clayton Kershaw’s first foray back from the disabled list with two runs given up over three frames to get the loss with Bud Norris giving up two in 2/3 of an inning. Los Angeles managed seven hits and walked three times with Yasmani Grandal cracking his 25th homer. Rich Hill is slated to make his third start for the Dodgers since coming over from Oakland. With Los Angeles, Hill has gone 2-0 and has yet to allow a run over 12 innings.

The Miami Marlins have gone from Wild Card contender to a team hoping to finish 2016 with a winning record. The Marlins had lost eight of ten before winning Friday night and pulling within one game of .500. Miami ace Jose Fernandez came up huge with seven scoreless innings to pick up the win. The Fish logged eight hits and walked twice with JT Realamuto going deep and scoring twice while all but one starter reached base. Tom Koehler toes the rubber against the visiting Dodgers for the second time this year. Koehler did not receive a decision in a 6-5 loss at Cleveland last time out with six shutout frames.
The under is 8-3 in Dodgers last 11 overall and is 8-3 in their last 11 on grass while going 8-3 in their last 11 Saturday games. Miami are 2-10 in their last 12 overall and are 2-10 in their last 12 games on grass. The over is 39-13-5 in the last 57 meetings and 13-5-2 in the last 20 meetings in Miami. I’ll take a chance with Hill because I’m seldom right on Koehler…
