L.A. Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs Preview
On the season the Dodgers have an Over/Under record of 75-69 and a run-line W/L record of 76-76 and the Cubs have an Over/Under record of 76-69 and a run-line W/L record of 77-75.
This season the Cubs are 38-36 at home and the Dodgers are 46-31 on the road.
In their last games the Dodgers lost to the Colorado Rockies 16-2 and the Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1.
The Cubs are 2-1 against the Dodgers this season.
The Dodgers have lost 2 straight, but they are still in the lead in the NL West with a 2-game lead over the San Francisco Giants. Unless the Dodgers or Giants go into a free fall in the last 2 weeks of the season it looks as if both will make the playoffs.
The Cubs can just play spoilers at this points, but they have won 3 in a row and they have taken 2 of 3 from the Dodgers this season.
In losing 2 straight to say the Dodgers pitching struggled would be an understatement, as they have been outscored 26-6.
Tsuyoshi Wada (4-3, 3.34 ERA) goes for the Cubs tonight and in his last outing he was not sharp giving up 4 earned runs in 4 innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Wada was 4-1 with a 2.56 ERA in his first 8 starts but is 0-2 with a 5.93 mark in the last 3.
Zach Greinke (15-8 2.64 ERA) goes for the Dodgers tonight and in his last outing he did not give up any earned runs in 6 innings in a big win over the San Francisco Giants.
Greinke is 3-0 with a 1.69 ERA over his last five starts.
While with the Dodgers Greinke is 4-0 facing the Cubs at home, but in Chicago he is 0-2.
The Dodgers are 3-8 in Greinke’s last 11 road starts.
Wada may have to get a good start for the Cubs to win, as their offense has struggled all season and they only rank 27th in the Majors in runs scored.
