Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers took one on the chin in Miami on Thursday before skipping town and making the short trip north. It’s ok. Los Angeles was +32 in its previous four games (all wins).
Kenta Maeda faces Mike Soroka on Friday and Hyun-Jin Ryu takes the ball on Saturday. Ryu only just returned from a short stint on the DL in his last start on Sunday, when he tossed seven shutout innings against a good Diamondbacks’ lineup to pick up his 12th win of the season.
Ryu has missed a couple starts in the second half so he may not be as far ahead in the Cy Young chase as he would be had he stayed completely healthy but he still has to be the front-runner at the moment.
The 1.45 ERA is not only spectacular but way better than everybody else’s. Soroka’s 2.32 is the next-best in the NL. He’s just outside the top-10 in innings pitched. A strong final six weeks should be enough for his first Cy. He hasn’t even placed in a final vote in his career, to date.
The Braves missed a chance to sweep the Mets on Thursday but two out of three is just fine for Atlanta, which came into the series with a healthy lead in the division and ends it in even better position.
New York knocked Julio Teheran out in the second inning but the game became so lopsided so early that Brian Snitker just used his mop-up men. Josh Tomlin gave up 10 hits in relief and threw 67 pitches.
The Braves actually put up four runs in the ninth and made it interesting before Ender Inciarte struck out against Edwin Diaz, representing the tying run at the plate.
These are the NL’s two best teams, by record. Los Angeles is already into the 80s in wins, while Atlanta is the only team in the entire league with 70-something wins. This will be a bit of a statement series.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Ryu.
In my mind, he’s the Cy Young and I’m taking him on the road in what could a fairly inexpensive buy.
