The Los Angeles Dodgers look to keep rolling after winning nine of their last 11 games. The Dodgers have scored 12 runs in this series and five or more runs in five of their last seven 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 100 hits and 50 RBI while Justin Turner and Chris Taylor have combined for 189 hits and 87 RBI. Alex Wood gets the ball, and he is 11-1 with a 2.17 ERA and 105 strikeouts this season. This will be Wood’s first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 7-2 in Santanas last 9 road starts and 1-4 in Santanas last 5 starts with 4 days of rest. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series, 41-12 in their last 53 home games and 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games. The Twins are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings and the over is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings.
Another day, another Dodgers victory. It's been that way the last couple of months, as trying to find spots to fade the Dodgers has become tougher and tougher while the wins pile up at an insane rate. Sure, the prices aren't cheap, but victories are victories at the end of the day regardless of the value you're getting. Wood is a CY Young candidate and the Dodgers are crushing the ball nightly. Another LAD victory is in the cards even though Santana has been sharp in his own right and has had success on the road.
