Saturday August 24
Dodger Stadium – Los Angeles, CA
Probable Starters:
BOS: Jon Lester (L)
LAD: Hyun-Jin Ryu (L)
Moneyline: Los Angeles -120, Boston +110

The Dodgers do have quality pitching but it is surprising how much they stymied this Red Sox lineup that leads the Majors in runs scored.

They jammed in slugger David Ortiz at first base but I wonder if he might sit this afternoon against a lefty.

Jon Lester is going to be a road warrior once again – this will be the fifth time he has started on the road in his last 6 starts. It was the one home start that gave him some trouble though as Lester seems to have refound his groove of late. He has never faced the Dodgers before but has generally fared well in interleague play with a 12-5 career record.

Boston looks like they are going to be in a dogfight the rest of the season and it is fortunate that their best pitcher has started to come around.

Los Angeles

L.A. did it again shutting out the Red Sox for back to back games with zero runs allowed. Adding insult to injury former Sox prospect Hanley Ramirez provided all the offense they would need with a 2 run homer as he makes his bid for MVP. The Dodgers haven’t given up a run in their 26 innings as they continue to roll over whatever team lies in their path.


This is as impressive a run as I can remember and they are now just a game behind Atlanta for the best record in the Majors.

On another staff Hyun-Jin Ryu might be the ace, on this staff he is not even the best lefty. Instead he provides Los Angeles with tremendous depth as they continue their sizzling play. Ryu has definitely been central to the Dodgers success as they had won 9 of his starts in a row before his last outing, a rare loss. The South Korean rookie is making a nice bid for Rookie of the Year honours but again he might not even be the best rookie on his own team with OF Yasiel Puig making headlines.

The magic will wear off sooner or later but until it does I don’t see how you can bet against Los Angeles. The funny thing is that you can still get decent value a lot of the time, like this one where the fact that it is Boston with Lester makes this one a a high value opportunity backing the hottest team in the league.

Those are not supposed to go hand in hand.

O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction: Los Angeles 5 – Boston 3
