Schule's 10* MLB Total Recall TERMINATOR - *SALVATION*
LA Dodgers vs. Philadelphia,
08/04/2015 19:05 EDT,
Score: 2 - 6
Total: -111/+8 Over
This is a 10* play on LAD@PHI to go OVER the total.
The Phillies have won 12 of 15 games since the All Star break, and they've been swinging some hot bats, with a team batting average of .289 during that span. They host the Dodgers tonight, and I expect this to be a slugfest.
Jerome William will toe the slab for the Phillies, so they will likely have to score a few runs if they want to win tonight. Williams (3-8, 6.36 ERA) was torched for four runs on 10 hits over just 4 1/3 innings in an 8-2 loss to Toronto his last time out. He's in search of his first win since mid May, and the Phillies have lost nine of his last 10 starts.
The Dodgers hand the ball to Alex Wood, who makes his debut after coming over from Atlanta. Wood (7-6, 3.54 ERA) tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings in a no decision at Baltimore his last time out. He's making his fourth start against Philly this season, and he's surrendered seven runs on 24 hits and six walks over 16 innings in three previous meetings.
We don't see many low scoring games in this ballpark, as the Phillies have trended over at a rated of 20-5-3 in their last 28 home games.
