Pittsburgh at Los Angeles

Sunday 09/20 04:10 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Los Angeles +115 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.23)  RESULT: LOSS

A tough situational spot for the Pirates, 2,200 miles from home and their third straight road game of a 10-game trip. Pittsburgh is on a 1-4 run, ranked 16th in baseball in runs scored and 23rd in slugging. Pirates starter Gerrit Cole has a 4.50 ERA against the Dodgers this season, as well as a 4.50 ERA against them over the last four years. The Dodgers are on an 18-6 run, 43-16 at home against a right-handed starter. Dodgers righty Mike Bolsinger (6-3, 3.13 ERA) has not lost since July 5, going 2-0 while allowing three runs or fewer in each of his last six outings. The Dodgers are 6-2 in his last eight home starts. Los Angeles has plenty to play for, 1.5 games in front of the New York Mets for home-field advantage in their potential NL Division Series matchup. They have a winning record at the mid-point of this nice 10-game homestand, plus 13-3 at home against a team with a winning record. Los Angeles is also 70-34 against Pittsburgh, with the Pirates just 15-37 at Dodgers Stadium. Play the Los Angeles Dodgers.
