Dodgers are Hammering Right-Handed Pitching

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ torrid pace doesn’t appear to be ending any time soon, as the NL West leaders eye their 36th win in 42 contests Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins in the Golden State. Sportsbooks opened the Dodgers as -229 home favorites with a total of 7.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Twins are 0-5 SU in their last five games against the Dodgers.
  • The total has gone OVER in nine of the Dodgers' last 12 games when closing out a series.
  • The Twins are 7-2 SU in their last nine games on the road with Ervin Santana as the starting pitcher.

Ervin Santana and Brock Stewart will get the nod for the Twinkies and Dodgers, respectively. Santana (11-7, 3.26 ERA) ended May with a 7-2 record but has given up at least five runs on five occasions since. The two-time all-star surrendered five runs on seven hits and two walks while throwing 95 pitches in just over three innings in a loss to Detroit in his last time out.

Stewart (0-0, 0.00) will make his first start of the season tonight after tossing six scoreless frames from the bullpen, including two innings of work against Atlanta on Thursday. The hurler struggled in his first five career starts in 2016, going 2-2 with a 6.38 ERA in that span.

Los Angeles has been absolutely hammering right-handed pitching of late. In the Dodgers’ last 10 vs righties, they’re a sizzling 9-1 SU.
