Phillies vs Dodgers: Worst Hosts First in Philadelphia

Phillies vs Dodgers: Worst Hosts First in Philadelphia

Los Angeles Dodgers: Send the Ace amongst MLB Aces

Clinging to a two-game lead over San Francisco in the NL West playoff race, Los Angeles looks for back-to-back wins over Philadelphia. After dropping the series opener 6-2, the Dodgers hung on for a 4-3 victory last night. Los Angeles is 10-7 since the All-Star break with twelve of those contests being road games. Super stud RHP Zack Greinke (10-2 ERA 1.41) gets the start for the Dodgers today. Greinke has allowed four runs over 58.2 innings pitched during his last eight starts.

Philadelphia Phillies: Winning run is way too little – way too late

Break up the Phillies! Despite a MLB worst 42-66 record, Philadelphia has been red hot as they are 13-4 since returning from the All-Star break. Solid hitting has helped power the winning run as the Phillies scored at least five runs in ten of the thirteen victories. Don’t expect that plate production to continue in this contest. Called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, when Cole Hamels was traded at the end of July, RHP David Buchanan (2-5 ERA 6.44) is looking for a third straight win.

Dodgers vs Philles MLB Prediction: Greinke is 4-0 against the Phillies since moving to LA in 2013 and the Dodgers have won those contests by a 21-6 margin. That includes a 6-0 victory on July 9 as Greinke spun a one hit gem over eight innings. While they are both sparkling marks, Greinke’s ERA on the road is 1.26 compared to 1.54 at home. Need more? The Grinder is 4-0 (0.49 ERA) during five daytime starts, with 31 strikeouts over 36.2 innings pitched, this season. Dial up a Dodgers win with a 500 unit wager on the run line price posted on the SportsInteraction betting board.
