Score: 3 - 5
Money Line: -165 LA Dodgers
8* LA Dodgers (10:07 ET): The Dodgers have clearly emerged as the team to beat in the National League as their .682 win percentage is baseball's best. A 1-0 shutout of the Giants on Sunday made it 13 wins in the last 16 games. They have to be feeling pretty good about themselves today as they send Hyun-Jin Ryu to the mound in search of his 10th win. So do I. Ryu has been absolutely lights out this season in compiling a 9-1 record (13 starts) w/ a 1.35 ERA and 0.775 WHIP. His last start, which saw him toss seven shutout innings of three-hit ball vs. Arizona, was the 5th time in his L6 starts that Ryu did not give up any runs.
In fact, Ryu has yet to allow more than two runs in any start all season! Since May 1st, he's taken the mound seven times and given up a grand total of three runs in 52 2/3 IP. That's absolutely preposterous. That's a 0.51 ERA and 0.646 WHIP, for those keeping score at home. The Dodgers have won four of those last seven starts in shutout fashion, including the last two. By the way, Ryu is 2-0 in three career starts vs. the Angels w/ a 0.83 ERA. He's even held Mike Trout hitless in seven at-bats.
The Angels got beat up Sunday, losing 9-3 to Seattle. Consider the weekend a missed opportunity as the Mariners came in having not won a series of any kind since mid-May and none on the road since April. But they took two of three from the Angels, who must now step up in class to face the high-powered Dodgers. Griffin Canning has pitched well for the AL's LA team, but he won't be enough to beat the cross-town rivals as the Angels have dropped six of their last seven series openers. 8* LA Dodgers
