MLB RUNLINE RIPPER
LA Dodgers vs. Baltimore,
09/12/2019 19:15 EDT,
Score: 4 - 2
Point Spread: -1½/-144 LA Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers have the division wrapped up, but they still can't be happy with yesterday's 7-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. I like the Dodgers to bounce back with a big win here on Thursday.
Baltimore righty Dylan Bundy (6-13, 5.06 ERA) has been tagged with nine runs (eight earned) on 14 hits through 12 innings of work in his last two starts. He has served up three homers during that stretch and 28 homers in 144 innings on the season, which could spell trouble against the home run happy Dodgers.
As for LA starter Rich Hill (4-1, 2.55 ERA), the left-hander will make his first start since June 19, having recovered from a flexor tendon injury. He was 3-0 in his last four starts (all Dodgers wins) with only five runs allowed over 20 innings of work before going on the IL, and the team covered the runline in all those games.
In addition to the Dodgers to cover the runline, I also think this contest score will fly over the posted total.
8* play on LA Dodgers.
