The Line: Philadelphia Phillies +160 / Los Angeles Dodgers -174 -- Over/Under: 9
The Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Sunday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Philadelphia Phillies could use a win after losing four of their last six games. The Phillies have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last eight games. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost their last five games when scoring three or less runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 61 hits and 28 RBI while Jean Segura and Rhys Hoskins have combined for 115 hits and 65 RBI. Nick Pivetta gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 7.71 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Pivetta is 1-1 with a 3.27 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 16 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 78 hits and 52 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 111 hits and 61 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.73 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Hill is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 8-2 in their last 10 Sunday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Pivetta's last 5 starts. The Dodgers are 41-14 in their last 55 home games, 39-18 in their last 57 Sunday games and 10-4 in Hill's last 14 starts. The Phillies are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles. The over is 23-9-1 in Hill's last 33 starts overall. The over is 7-1 in Pivetta's last 8 starts overall.
Pivetta has given up 34 hits and 20 earned runs in 23.1 innings this season while walking 10 batters. Not what you want to see when going up against a red hot Dodgers offense. Oh, and against current Dodgers hitters, Pivetta is allowing a .379 batting average with three homers in 29 at bats. Hill has allowed just three runs in his last 18 innings and is slowly getting back in the swing of things after a late start to the season. Hill is also usually highly effective when pitching at Dodger Stadium. I'll once again lay the juice with the Dodgers.
