Dodgers Red Hot Against Cincinnati

Despite being on a bit of a slump the last couple weeks, the Dodgers have held on to first place in the NL West in part, due to the Giants' 11-23 record since the all-star break. LA will send Scott Kazmir (10-6, 4.41 ERA) out tonight in hopes of extending their division lead as they face Homer Bailey (2-1, 3.66 ERA) and the Cincinnati Reds.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games against the Reds.
  • The Reds are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 9 of the Reds' last 10 games with Bailey as the starting pitcher.

Since being lifted from the DL, Homer Bailey has had a tough time posting quality starts as he has not gone deep in games. He only has one start at home so far since being taken off the shelf but limited the Marlins to just one earned run in five innings in that game. In Bailey’s last three starts against the Dodgers, he has posted a 2.57 ERA with a 1-1 record.

Kazmir earned a win his last time out after posting three consecutive losses. He has pitched well against the Reds this year, earning a 1.50 ERA over his two starts against Cincinnati. That being said, Kazmir has been awful in games played during the day. Through his five games in the sun, the Dodgers lefty has a 6.48 ERA.
