L.A. Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs Preview
1. The Dodgers rank 4th in the Majors in team ERA.
2. The Mets rank 3rd in the Majors in team ERA.
3. The Mets have the 2nd most home wins in the NL.
This season the Mets are 32-14 at home and the Dodgers are 21-25 on the road.
In their last games the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 and the Mets lost to the Washington Nationals 4-3.
The Mets and the Dodgers are in the same boat, as they are tough to beat at home, but each is under .500 on the road. However, with reigning Cy Young and MVP Clayton Kershaw on the hill the Dodgers are the MAJOR home favorite in this game in the Big Apple.
Kershaw has not given up a run in the last 20 innings and he has never taken a loss facing the Mets. After a slow start to the season he is looking like the Kershaw of old and in his last 10 starts he has an ERA of 1.36. No wonder the Dodgers are the big favorite in this game and on top of that New York only ranks 29th in the Majors in runs scored.
The Dodgers are 27-13 in Kershaw’s last 40 starts as a road favorite.
The Dodgers have won 6 of their last 10 games and they are in first place in the NL West 2.5 games up on the San Francisco Giants. The Mets are also 6-4 in their last 10 games and they are in 2nd place in the NL East 3 games back of the Washington Nationals.
While Kershaw got off to a slow start Bartolo Colon flew out of the gates, but things have cooled off for him big time. He was shelled in his last start giving up 7 runs in 4 innings in a 12-2 blowout loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
In Colon’s last 10 starts he is 3-6 with an ERA of 5.74. The Mets have dropped their last 5 games when he has gotten the start.
Earlier this month the Mets won 2 of 3 games against the Dodgers in L.A.
The Dodgers have won 8 of their last 10 games facing the Mets in New York and they have won 14 of their last 19 facing them overall.
