Pittsburgh at Los Angeles

Saturday 09/19 09:10 PM Eastern

1 unit on Los Angeles -200 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.5)  RESULT: LOSS

Good luck to the Pirates! 2,200 miles from home, their second straight road game of a 10-game trip, and facing Clayton Kershaw (14-6, 2.12 ERA). Pittsburgh is probably thinking, "Let's just skip this and play Sunday." Pittsburgh is just #16 in baseball in runs scored, and #23 in slugging. The Pirates have lost four straight games and are 0-4 against a team with a winning record. Starter Francisco Liriano lasted only 2 1/3 innings in his last start when he allowed five runs and seven hits against a weak Milwaukee offense. He faces a Dodgers lineup that is second in baseball in on-base percentage and #7 in slugging. The Dodgers are on an 18-5 run, as well as 61-25 at home. Kershaw attempts to win his 10th consecutive decision and has allowed one or fewer earned runs in 13 of his past 14 starts. Kershaw is 10-2 with a 1.40 ERA and 0.77 WHIP in 14 home starts, and the team is 52-22 when Kershaw starts at home. LA is 70-33 against Pittsburgh, with the Pirates 14-37 at Dodger Stadium. Take the L.A. Dodgers and their ace at home.
