The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers end their four-game series Thursday afternoon.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Dodgers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last nine games. The Dodgers have won 15 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adrian Gonzalez leads Los Angeles with 38 hits and 22 RBI while Joc Pederson and Howie Kendrick have combined for 33 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost three of their last four games on the road. Carlos Frias gets the ball, and he’s 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and five strikeouts this season. Frias is 0-0 with a 7.50 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Brewers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Brewers have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Lind leads Milwaukee with 30 hits and 15 RBI while Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez have combined for 24 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have won three of their last four games on their home field. Mike Fiers takes the hill, and he’s 1-3 with a 4.74 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Fiers is 3-0 with a 1.08 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series and 4-9 in their last 13 road games. The Brewers are 8-22 in their last 30 during game 4 of a series and 2-6 in Fiers' last 8 starts. The Dodgers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
The Brewers are playing far better under their new head coach and have a pitcher in Frias who has had great career success against the Dodgers. Give me the plus money and the home team.
