The Dodgers come into this series with the best record in baseball and they are 30 games better than Arizona. Los Angeles will also get to hit against Ryne Nelson, who has only made one appearance this season. The Dodgers are starting Tyler Anderson, who has allowed seven earned runs over his last 26.1 innings pitched. I am taking the Dodgers to win this game by two runs, as I do not trust Ryne Nelson to quiet the Dodger bats.
