Los Angeles Dodgers
Stripling pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his third win of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies. He pitched seven innings giving up four hits and one runs off of a solo home run while he struck out nine and walked two.
Stripling has been one of Los Angeles most efficient pitchers this season. He owns a solid 10.99 K/9 and 2.05 BB/9, while he has only given up three home runs in 48.1 innings of work. He’ll look to improve his already sparkling 1.68 ERA and 2.16 FIP.
Los Angeles is starting to get their act together in the last week as they have won five of their seven contests. During that time their lineup has been hot as they are slashing .276/.335/.481 to go with 26 extra-base hits and 45 RBI.
Musgrove was yet again spectacular in his second start of the season as he put in another quality start and picked up his second win of the season against the Chicago Cubs. He pitched seven innings giving up seven hits and one earned run while he struck out five and walked four.
Musgrove had to work a little harder in this outing to complete seven innings as he needed 100 pitches as compared to his last outing where he went seven innings on just 67 pitches. He did have a rough first inning giving up a run and escaped a bases loaded jam, but he managed to regain his composure to put in another quality start.
Pittsburgh has been playing losing baseball in the last week as they have only won two of their past seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .229/.270/.388 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

Stripling posted a 1.20 ERA in the month of May to go with a slash line of .214/.243/.270. Musgrove has been solid thus far, but was a tad shaky his last outing and is about to face a hot Los Angeles lineup. The difference in this one should be Los Angeles lineup as they are hitting the best they have all season. Roll with the road faves.
