The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Dodgers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers haven’t lost a game when scoring more than three runs since June 15. Corey Seager leads the Dodgers with 99 hits and 50 RBI while Justin Turner and Chris Taylor have combined for 187 hits and 84 RBI. Kenta Maeda gets the ball, and he is 8-4 with a 4.23 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. This will be Maeda’s first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 2-6 in their last 8 road games and 10-4 in Berrios' last 14 starts. The Dodgers are 40-12 in their last 52 home games, 35-17 in their last 52 during game 2 of a series and 9-2 in Maedas last 11 starts. The over is 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings.
Berrios has been one of the Twins more consistent pitchers, but he's had his struggles on the road this season, which isn't good when facing a Dodgers club that can't lose and keeps tearing the cover off the ball. Maeda has allowed one or less earned runs in six of his last seven starts. While the prices aren't cheap these days for the best team in baseball, those tickets continue to cash. Hard to find spots to fade the Dodgers.
