The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers square off in MLB action from American Family Field on Thursday.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to build on an 8-0 win over the Reds on Wednesday. Justin Turner leads the Dodgers with a .337 batting average, 29 hits, 6 home runs and 20 RBIs with 7 doubles, sharing the Dodger lead in two-baggers with Mookie Betts who also has 7 doubles this season. Corey Seager has 25 hits with 6 doubles, 4 home runs and 17 RBIs while Max Muncy has a .437 OBP this season. Trevor Bauer will start here and is 3-0 with a 2.53 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. In his career, Bauer is 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA and 32 strikeouts against Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Brewers will look to rebound from a 6-2 loss to Miami on Wednesday. Travis Shaw leads the Brewers with 17 RBIs while Omar Narvaez has a team-high 23 hits and is one of four Brewers who shares the team lead with 3 home runs this season. Keston Hiura and Luis Urias each have 4 doubles while Jackie Bradley Jr. has a pair of triples for the Brewers this season. Eric Lauer will start here for the Brewers and is making his season debut after going 0-2 with a 13.09 ERA and 12 strikeouts last season. In his career, Lauer is 5-0 with a 2.11 ERA and 43 strikeouts against the Dodgers.
Los Angeles is 43-15 in their last 58 road games and 61-24 in their last 85 games overall while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite. Milwaukee is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 6-2 in their last 8 games as an underdog while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 home games. Los Angeles is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
I get the case that could be made either way here, but one thing for sure, is that both sides have a solid starter going with Bauer for the Dodgers and Lauer going for the Brew Crew. I think even with a lower total, this is shaping up to be a pitcher’s duel, so give me the under here.
