The MLB is back on Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers will clash with Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA in game two of a three-game series. The Dodgers will give the nod to Kenta Maeda and the Phillies will counter with Aaron Nola.
Los Angeles Dodgers Form
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been playing well lately. They were able to get to the top spot in the National League West and it seems like they are unstoppable at the moment. The consistent offensive game is their main weapon this season and it kept them in the race with the Diamondbacks for the top spot in the division. Their stats in recent games are very solid as they won 12 of their last 17 games. The Dodgers have averaged 5.23 runs per game and has allowed 3.98 runs per game on the road so far.
Kenta Maeda record against the Phillies stands at 3-1 with a 4.37 ERA in five starts, including 1-0 with a 4.00 ERA in two starts here at Citizens Bank Park.
On the offensive side of the game, the Dodgers have been good this season as they are placed on the 8th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.77 runs per game, while they are also on the 14th place in hitting at .247 and 5th spot in homers with a total of 132. On the mound, the Dodgers are the 2nd best team in the league in with an ERA of 3.46, while they are 3rd in WHIP at 1.20 and 4th spot in K’s with 944.
Philadelphia Phillies Form
The Philadelphia Phillies have been playing well this season. They are one of the top teams in the National League East and it seems that they will battle with the Braves for the top spot. However, they have a slight drop of form lately as they have been struggling against a poor Padres team.
The Phillies have averaged 4.65 runs per game and have allowed 3.96 runs per game at their home ground.
Aaron Nola record against the Dodgers stands at 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in two starts.
The Phillies have below average offensive stats in the league this season. They are placed on the 18th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.38 runs per game, while also being 26th place in hitting at .236 and 16th spot in homers with a total of 108. On the mound, they have been good as they are placed on the 10th spot in the league in ERA at 3.85, while also being 11th in WHIP at 1.24 and on the 7th place in K’s with 885.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of the teams that are playing really well in the recent games. Their offensive game has been impressive lately and their pitching is solid. The Phillies surprised many with their results this season. The expectation was that they will be behind the Nationals, however, they showed some great character so far this season. Nevertheless, I think that the Dodgers are the better team right now and I expect them to continue their domination in this game. Go for L.A in this game.
