The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays will be finishing up their quick two-game MLB set on Wednesday.

In the Tuesday game, the Dodgers peppered in runs across five different innings on the way to a 7-3 victory.

For Wednesday’s matchup, the Dodgers will be sending out Rich Hill for the start. In his 21.0 innings and 1-1 mark this year, Hill has a 3.00 ERA with 24 Ks and three walks.

Los Angeles put up 12 hits as a team on Tuesday, and three players had more than one hit. Justin Turner helped out with two hits of his own along with an RBI.

Tampa Bay will be sending out RHP Ryne Stanek to open the game Wednesday. This year so far, Stanek has an 0-1 record with a 3.70 ERA and 25 strikeouts.

The Rays had 10 hits in the Tuesday loss, but could only score runs in one inning—plating three in the seventh. Three Tampa Bay players came away from that one with multiple hits.

The Dodgers are 6-1 in their last seven in game two of a series and 6-0 in Hill’s last six road starts. LA is 10-2 in Hill’s last 12 starts and 17-5 in his last 22 after a quality start in his previous appearance.

Meanwhile, the Rays are 20-7 in their last 27 in game two of a series and 1-4 in their last five Wednesday games. The under is 6-2 in Tampa Bay’s last eight in game two of a series.

Hill has been on a nice run this year, no doubt. He had a couple of relatively sketchy outings this month however, with six earned on 12 hits in a span of 9.0 innings, but other than that Hill has been golden.

I can’t find a lot of reasons not to pick the Dodgers with Hill on the… well, the hill.

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -140
