The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in MLB action from American Family Field on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be out to rebound from their 5-4 loss to the Brewers in Tuesday’s matchup. Freddie Freeman has 143 hits with a .320 batting average while Justin Turner has 58 RBIs and 24 doubles. Trea Turner also has 144 hits with 30 doubles, a .306 batting average and a team-high 83 RBIs. Freeman also has 39 doubles to lead the Dodgers while Mookie Betts has 111 hits, 27 home runs and a .273 batting average. Tony Gonsolin will get the start here and is 14-1 with a 2.24 ERA and 105 strikeouts this season.

The Milwaukee Brewers will look to build the momentum up after their rally to beat the Dodgers on Tuesday. Rowdy Tellez has 24 home runs and 72 RBIs while Hunter Renfroe has 20 homers as well and Willy Adames also has 23 home runs. Renfroe has a .242 batting average and Adames has 66 RBIs. Christian Yelich also has 103 hits with 18 doubles and 36 RBIs and Andrew McCutchen has a .250 batting average and 97 hits this season. Eric Lauer will start here and is 8-4 with a 3.64 ERA and 116 strikeouts this season.

Los Angeles is 41-10 in their last 51 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a left-handed starter while the under is 9-0 in their last 9 game three matchups. Milwaukee is 4-9 in their last 13 games overall and 7-1 in their last 8 home games against a team with a right-handed starter while the under is 2-0-2 in their last 4 home games.

I get the case to be made for the Brewers here after eking out the win over the Dodgers late on Tuesday. However, I’m still not 100% sold on Eric Lauer and I just don’t expect the Dodgers to stay down for long. Simple as that. Tony Gonsolin’s been one of L.A.’s best this season and they keep finding ways to win with him on the road this season. I’ll side with the Dodgers in a bounce back here.
