Dodgers Offense Looks to Bounce Back

The Dodgers on Saturday only scored a run and that led to the defeat. They actually gave up nine hits, so they were a bit lucky to give up only three runs. Walker Buehler got the start and went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and three runs. He had four strikeouts and one walk. The Dodgers are averaging 5.06 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.66 runs per game. The offense is ranked 2nd in the league while the pitching is ranked 5th. They have a run differential of 1.39 runs which is 4th in the league. Shohei Ohtani has hit 13 home runs and driven in 35 RBIs. Yoshinbou Yamamoto is getting the start for the Dodgers and coming into this game he sits with a 5-1 record and an ERA of 3.17. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, he went 6.1 innings giving up seven hits and two runs. 

Reds Have Won First Two Games

The Reds have won the first two games of this series, but they were different games. In the first game the Reds were able to secure the 9-6 win and on Saturday they scored three runs while the pitching gave up only one. The Reds are averaging 4.18 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.33 runs per game. The offense is ranked 19th in the league while the pitching is ranked 15th. Elly De La Cruz has hit nine home runs and driven in 23 RBIs so far this season. In this game the Reds need to try to get the offense going early. If the offense struggles this could be a long game. The Reds will meet the Cardinals after this series.

LA Dodgers vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

Yamamoto has been the real deal this season for the Dodgers, and that success is going to continue here. In his last start, he gave up two runs, and he sits with an ERA of 3.17. The Dodgers have a strong run differential of 1.39 runs, and that is going to grow even larger here. The Dodgers' offense is going to run up the score, and that will be the difference here as the Dodgers are going to get the job done. Back the Dodgers on the run line.
