Hamels was knocked around in his last start as the Houston Astros tagged him with his sixth loss of the season in a 5-2 loss. He did go 7.1 innings, but he gave up seven hits, five earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out five and walked two.
On the season the lefty has done well with the strike outs (8.96 K/9) and walks (3.29 BB/9), but has struggled with the long ball (1.93 HR/9) and 20.5% HR/FB ratio. His 3.86 ERA and 83.1% LOB% is nice, but once his lucky .252 BABIP regresses his ERA should fall more towards his 5.37 FIP.
Texas continues to play losing baseball only winning two of their six contests in the last week. During that time their lineup is slashing .249/.361/.447 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
Los Angeles Dodgers
It was a very short outing for Maeda who left the game early due to a hip injury against the Philadelphia Phillies. He went 1.2 innings giving up three hits, two earned runs, and one home run while striking out two and walking one.
In 11 games this season Maeda owns a solid strikeout (11.69 K/9) to walk (3.10 BB/9) rate, while he has also done a good job containing the long ball (0.86 HR/9). His .336 BABIP has inflated his 3.61 ERA some as his FIP is currently sitting at a solid 2.84.
Los Angeles continues to play winning baseball as they have won four of their six contests in the past week. During that span their lineup has been hot slashing .264/.342/.579 to go with 28 extra-base hits and 37 RBI

Free Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: Los Angeles takes down Texas at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers -.5 1st Five Innings & OVER 7.5 Runs
After putting in 7.2 innings of work in his last outing, I expect this to be a short outing for Hamels, meaning Los Angeles gets to him early. Maeda has been pitching solid baseball and will be coming in on extra rest against a Texas lineup that swings for the fences, which his 11.69 K/9 should come in handy. I expect Los Angeles to have a solid lead before their bullpen enters the game.
