Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers fell short 3-1 in Cincinnati Tuesday night against the Reds. The loss puts them at 5-5 through their previous 10 games. L.A will wrap up the series in Cinci on Wednesday night before traveling West to St. Louis.
They will enter Wednesday’s game 1.5 games behind the Colorado Rockies in the National League West. While the Dodgers have been above average in the batter’s box lately, scoring 22 runs in their last five games, they will need to do more with the wood if they want to make a serious run at a division title.
Lefty Clayton Kershaw will be on the mound in Thursday’s game, looking to improve his 7-5 record.
He will enter the game with an impressive 2.42 ERA and has been able to send a total of 134 batters back to the dugout on strikes this season.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals have now found the winner’s column three games in a row after beating up on the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-5 on Tuesday. They have one more to go in Pittsburgh Wednesday night before making the trip home for Thursday’s action.
After the win, the Red Birds have a 5-5 record in their previous 10 games and are currently 3.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central.
St. Louis has been impressive with the wood their last five trips on the field, crossing home plate a total of 30 times during the span.
Southpaw Austin Gomber will be the man putting in work on the hill for the Cardinals Thursday, looking to stay unbeaten as a starter this season.
He has a 5-0 record to go along with a 2.93 ERA and 51 strikeouts on the season.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
The Cardinals have been able to swing the bats their last few games, but it’s been a while since they have faced a pitcher with Kershaw’s arm.
The Dodger’s ace has missed a lot of the season with injuries but has a chance to get back in action when it matters most on plenty of rest. I look for him to make the most of the situation.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 7.5
Austin Gomber hasn’t seen a lot of action as a starter this year, but when he has been on the hill he’s been sharp.
I don’t see the Red Birds doing enough to get the win here, but I think the total stays under 7.5 in this great pitching matchup.
