Los Angeles Dodgers
The defending world series champions have had an impressive year. They came into this series playing good baseball.
With a record of 42-27 they are in 2nd place in the National League West. The Giants are 2.5 games ahead of them.
Before their game one win against Arizona, they took two out of three against the Phillies. They did a good job of preventing runs against the Phillies, as they only allowed 6 runs.
That good play has continued into this series as they just shutout the D-Backs 3-0. Trevor Bauer went 7 innings and struck out 8 batters. This is a good sign for him because his success in April and May had not continued into June.
Tony Gonsolin has not made many starts this year. He has a 3.38 ERA without a win or a loss. His command has been off in his starts and that will have to be better in the game on Sunday.
This pitching staff has been really good this year. They are ranked 3rd across baseball with a 3.16 ERA. Clayton Kershaw, Trevor Bauer, and Julio Urias have all contributed to that low ERA. They have also gotten good production from their bullpen.
The Dodgers offense is scoring 5.14 runs per game which is 2nd in the majors. The offense did not do a lot in game 1, but it was still enough to get the win. Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy, and Mookie Betts have all battled injuries this year.
Third baseman Justin Turner has 12 home runs and 34 RBI.
The Dodgers have hit 87 home runs which is 11th in baseball.
The losing continued the other day for this Arizona club. They have struggled the whole year and came into the series losers of their last 9 games.
Their poor play has put them in the basement of the National League West. Their record is 20-51, putting them 25.5 games behind the Giants.
Before the series against the Dodgers, they got swept by the Giants. In that series, the pitching allowed 37 runs in 4 games. The pitching was better yesterday as Caleb Smith went 6 innings and did not allow a run.
A pitcher has not been announced for the Diamondbacks yet. Whoever gets the nod will have their hands full going against this powerful Dodgers squad.
Their pitching staff has an ERA 5.34 ERA which is the worst in baseball.
The offense is the best part of their game. They are scoring 4.20 runs per game which is 18th in baseball.
They are toward the bottom of the league with 66 home runs hit.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between two teams that are going in opposite directions. In game 1, the Dodgers took care of business against a team that they are much better than.
Both teams will try to get more offense going as the series goes on. The Dodgers scored 3 runs and the Diamondbacks did not score at all.
The fact that Arizona has not announced a starter has not stopped me from going with the Dodgers. No matter who it is, I feel confident that the Dodgers will be able to score runs on him. I would not be surprised if the Diamondbacks hit Gonsolin, but I don’t think it will be enough to get a win. I see Los Angeles winning by more than 2 runs.
Give me the Dodgers on the run line.
