10-unit Play Take #953 Los Angeles Dodgers over Pittsburgh Pirates (7:05pm EST) It's not often that you are going to get Clayton Kershaw at a price this low, and especially not when he's in the midst of a scoreless innings streak of 37. After a slow start to the 2015 season by his standards, Kershaw is now looking better than ever. The Dodgers as a team have also been playing really good baseball, winning six of their last seven heading into this series. Pitching has been the key during the run, as the starters are going deep into games and the bullpen is shutting the door. The Pirates are a formidable opponent for sure, but they've benefitted somewhat from one of the easiest schedules in baseball thus far. They're also a bit banged up at the moment with Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer on the disabled list. They brought in Aramis Ramirez from the Brewers, but I'm not sure that's much of an upgrade from what they already had. Gerrit Cole gets the ball for Pittsburgh and he's having a tremendous season. He checks in at 14-5 with a 2.29 ERA in 21 starts. This should be a fun one to watch, but you can't pass up the best pitcher in baseball at this kind of price the way he's throwing it right now.
