The Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Friday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Marlins have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last six games. The Miami Marlins have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Starlin Castro leads the Marlins with 95 hits and 40 RBI while Miguel Rojas and Brian Anderson have combined for 177 hits and 73 RBI. Zac Gallen gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Gallen’s first career game against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Dodgers have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 115 hits and 77 RBI while Justin Turner and Alex Verdugo have combined for 186 hits and 83 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 10-2 with a 1.78 ERA and 105 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 2-1 with a 2.79 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.

The Marlins are 7-3 in their last 10 vs. National League West, 8-18 in their last 26 Friday games and 23-52 in their last 75 road games. The Dodgers are 48-16 in their last 64 home games, 77-35 in their last 112 vs. National League East and 56-26 in their last 82 overall. The Marlins are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 45-22-6 in the last 73 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Dodgers last 5 overall. The under is 7-3-1 in Marlins last 11 overall.

Gallen has pitched just 17 innings in his MLB career, and while he's shown promise and has a lot of strikeouts, he's also walked 10 batters and has given up a hit per inning in his last seven innings. Ryu has allowed 11 earned runs in his last 43 innings, and he has a 0.85 ERA and .189 allowed batting average in 63.2 innings at home this season. It's just unreal stuff from the 32-year-old from South Korea. I know the Marlins are playing better baseball than folks give them credit for and they have had success against the Dodgers as big underdogs, but betting against Ryu at home isn't an option for me. Give me the Dodgers and the RL to shave some of juice off the ML.
