The Los Angeles Dodgers look to keep rolling after winning 10 of their last 15 games. The Dodgers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 16 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense has been hit or miss recently, and they’ve won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 182 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 83 RBI and Justin Turner has 27 home runs. Rich Hill takes the hill, and he’s 12-4 with a 2.06 ERA and 118 strikeouts this season. Hill is 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 1-6 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 21-9 in Cuetos last 30 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 38-15 in their last 53 home games. The Giants are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Giants bullpen has been complete trash and they have to be shellshocked after blowing Monday's game, a contest they should have won. Not to mention Hill has allowed just four runs in 24.1 innings of work as a Dodger. Have to like the Dodgers at home even if the line may be a little pricey.
