Why you should back the Dodgers

The Dodgers are coming off a road sweep of the Cubs, and they’ll now look to continue padding their record against another sub-.500 squad. Los Angeles has outscored its last four opponents 29-4. The outlook again looks promising with Urias on the hill. The 25-year old lefty struggled in his season debut against the Rockies, giving up six runs — three earned — in just two innings at Coors Field.

But he’s bounced back in a huge way, allowing a total of two earned runs in his four starts since that point. He’s backed by an offense that ranks third in the National League in runs scored (134). The Dodgers have struck out fewer times than any other NL squad, so they’re consistently putting the ball in play and keeping the pressure on opposing pitchers. 

Why you should back the Pirates

Left fielder Ben Gamel is a solid hitter who has sneaky power and speed in his game. Gamel has decent plate discipline with a smooth-looking swing to all parts of the field. The 29-year-old has a batting average of .293 with two home runs and 13 RBI. Gamel has gotten into a groove lately, recording two-plus hits in four of his last five games.

Third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes is an athletic infielder who plays with high energy. Hayes uses his quick reads and instincts to make difficult plays on the defensive end. He has a rocket of an arm to deliver darts across the diamond. The 25-year-old also makes consistent contact with the baseball with his compact swing. Hayes is leading the team in batting average (.318), on-base percentage (.408) and hits (28).
