Dodgers Keep on Rolling
Heading into Saturday night’s game the Dodgers had lost four games in a row. Over the last three games the Dodgers offense scored 28 runs and they are going to need to continue that strong offense. On Friday the Dodgers scored 10 runs and the offense was led by David Peralta who finished with two hits, two runs, and two RBIs. The Dodgers are averaging 5.67 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.67 runs per game. On the mound will be Lance Lynn who sits with a 7-9 record and an ERA of 6.32.
Padres Continue to Disappoint
The Padres have been the most disappointing team in baseball, and the pitching again was awful on Friday. It was Robert Suarez that was awful going 0.2 innings and giving up five runs. The Padres are averaging 4.62 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.98 runs per game. The offense is ranked 13th while the pitching is ranked 2nd. On the mound for the Padres will be Rich Hill who sits with a 7-10 record and an ERA of 4.76. The Padres acquiring Hill didn’t make a lot of sense and it’s just another bad decision by the Padres.
Shane’s Free Pick
This is going to be the highest scoring game of Sunday. Hill has been awful, and Lynn has been even worse. The Padres scored five runs on Friday and they are going to go much higher than that here. The Dodgers also will score plenty off of Lynn and this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash here with ease.
