Kershaw, Dodgers Look To Wrap Up Series On High Note

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/4/2013 7:48:11 PM

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been stuck in the National League West basement for the majority of this season. They will have the chance to move one game closer to the team directly above them in the standings with a win on Wednesday. The Dodgers will look to close within one-half game of the San Diego Padres in the standings when they wrap up their online sports betting series. Los Angeles has been incredibly inconsistent all season, but is still just 7.5 games back of the Arizona Diamondbacks for first place in the NL West division.

The Padres haven’t been any better over the same span, splitting their last 10 games and hovering five games below .500. The San Diego offense once again ranks in the bottom third of the league, and now has to go up against Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers in this series finale.

The Padres rank just 25th in slugging percentage this season and 21st in scoring, so it isn’t like they have the bodies to overpower opponents. Will Venable leads San Diego with just seven home runs, and beyond that the overall hitting numbers are staggered with Chase Headley, Chris Denorfia, and Yonder Alonso all looking to play with more consistency. One Padres’ player that has been fairly consistent this year is Jason Marquis, who is 6-2 with a 3.82 ERA. Marquis hasn’t lasted more than 5.1 innings in each of his last two starts though, and must hit that number opposite Kershaw.

Kershaw has been money for the Dodgers once again this year, posting an incredible 1.85 ERA through his first 12 starts of the online betting season. The problem is a lack of run support has left him with a 5-3 record, although Los Angeles has won three of the last four games he has started. The Dodgers need Kershaw to be their best player in every game he starts, but he probably wouldn’t mind a little more run support. That could be tough with the 27th-ranked offense going up against Marquis, as this appears to have all of the makings of another low-scoring contest.

MLB Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The time is running out for Los Angeles to make a run, and while a win on Wednesday isn’t much to write home about, it will get the Dodgers within striking distance of passing San Diego and climbing out of the NL West basement. Kershaw has been incredible again all year, so look for him to finally be rewarded as Los Angeles squeezes out a few runs against the Padres’ Marquis in another low-scoring Dodgers’ home win to wrap up the series.
