Maeda Has Been Money At Dodger Stadium

The City of Angels has been kind to Kenta Maeda and he has reciprocated those feelings. Maeda has a stellar 3.18 ERA with a 1.02 WHIP at Dodger Stadium this season, which has led to the Dodgers winning the righty’s past eight starts at home. Maeda will take the bump at home against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Brewers’ last 12 games as underdogs.
  • The Brewers are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games against the Dodgers.
  • Chris Taylor is slashing .313/.384/.544 during the month of August.

Opposing Maeda for the Brew Crew will be Chase Anderson. The 29-year-old has quietly been putting together a stellar season and that continued in his last start despite it being his first outing after spending almost a month on the DL. Anderson allowed two hits and just one earned run in 5.0 innings of work against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

The Brewers has struggled in the past against the Dodgers, winning just two of their past nine meetings. The two teams clashed in a three-game series in early June, a set that the Dodgers won 2-1. Despite ultimately taking the series, the Dodgers scored two or fewer runs twice in those three games.
