Dodgers vs Marlins: Stumbling MLB Squads Meet in Miami
Los Angeles Dodgers: Maintaining a slim lead in the NL West
Despite a 13-13 record in June, Los Angeles continues to rule the roost in the NL West. The Dodgers are 42-33 overall and own a slim two game lead over the San Francisco Giants while Arizona is six games back. Not displaying his usual ace form, LHP Clayton Kershaw (5-5 ERA 3.33) heads to the bump for Los Angeles. The Dodgers have stumbled some with a 5-7 recent record but LA has won three straight road games, by a 16-3 margin, including a 7-1 mauling of the Marlins last night.
Miami Marlins: May meltdown has continued into a June swoon in South Beach
Posted as a middle of the road 2015 MLB World Series favorite, with a +3300 money line price in the preseason, the season is slipping away in South Beach. Mildly in the hunt after they posted a 12-12 season start, the Marlins have experienced a meltdown as the Fish are just 18-33 over their last 51 contests and sit 11.5 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East. After allowing one run, on three hits over seven innings, during a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees on June 15, RHP Tom Koehler (5-4 ERA 3.76) who is dealing with back an neck issues gets the call for Miami.
Marlins vs Dodgers MLB Decision: Miami is a mediocre 17-21 at home but that’s much better than the 13-24 mark they have posted on the road. Three straight wins have pushed the Dodgers road record to a pedestrian 15-20 mark. While it’s been weird picking “soft spots” with Kershaw this season, we like the Krushinator here.
