The Dodgers will kick off a 10-game homestand at Dodger Stadium when they host the visiting New York Mets in Game 1 of a three game series on Friday night.
Los Angeles (45-35) returns home as a winner, riding a two-game streak after taking the rubber match of a three-game set in Arizona.
The boys in blue went 6-4 on their 10-game road trip, and were led by second baseman Howie Kendrick, who is 14-for-28 with eight RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak, as well as veteran first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who hit .248 in June.
Gonzalez will look to build on that momentum heading into July, when he faces a Mets team who he is batting .391 with four homers, six doubles and 18 RBIs in his last 16 games against.
The Mets (40-40) meanwhile, have stalled of late, going 4-6 in their last 10.
Scoring runs has been a real issue, as New York finally scored a run in a 6-1 defeat to Chicago on Thursday, to put an end to a 22 2/3-inning scoring drought.
It was the 12th time in the last 14 games the Mets have scored two or fewer runs.
Their scoring trouble may continue as they will face three-time National League Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw on Friday.
The lefty has dominated New York , going 5-0 with a 1.62 ERA in seven career starts against them.
Kershaw is currently riding a three-game losing streak, but can’t take all the blame, as the lineup has plated just three runs of support or fewer in nine of his 16 outings this year.
New York will counter with Noah Syndergaard who has been somewhat of a disappoint in his rookie season.
The right-hander did however, halting a four-game winless streak last Friday, by allowing just one run on five hits over eight innings in a 2-1 victory over Cincinnati.
The 21-year-old will make his first start against the Dodgers, looking to improve on a 0-3 road record (6.52 ERA) this season.
Matt’s Free 4* Prediction
Los Angeles – The Dodgers have played well of late, and should be able to provide enough run support to grab the win and help snap Kershaw’s winless skid.
