The Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Tuesday in a big time interleague showdown at Dodger Stadium. Could this be a World Series preview? These two teams have played four times this season with each team winning two of the games.
The Oakland Athletics have to feel like they have a chance to with the World Series and coming into this game they have won three of the last four games. The only loss during that stretch was in the A’s last game against the Giants, a game they gave up 14 runs in. In the previous two games the A’s didn’t give up a run so giving up that many runs was a bit of a shock. Matt Olson has been the best player for the A’s hitting 14 home runs and driving in 42 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Dodgers who also have dreams of winning the World Series this season.This is one of the best lineups in baseball, and they also have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball. Mookie Betts has been the best offensive player for the Dodgers hitting 16 home runs and driving in 39 RBI’s. Corey Seager has been another player who has been hitting the ball hard with 13 home runs and 37 RBI’s.
Franie Montas will get the start for the A’s and coming into this game he sits with a 3-4 record and an ERA of 5.86.
On the other side of this matchup will be Dustin May who will get the start for the Dodgers. Coming into this game May sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 2.68.
The A’s are 13-5 in Montas last 18 starts. The Dodgers are 23-6 in their last 29 games played on Tuesday. The Dodgers are 11-3 in their last 14 interleague games. The Dodgers are 47-18 in their last 66 games as a favorite. The A’s are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between the Dodgers.
Even though Montas ERA is high, the A’s have found success in his starts and it will happen again. Look for the A’s offense to have enough success to come away with a victory in this game.
