Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson and Max Muncy also hit a home run in the rout. Alex Wood threw the first six innings to get the win, giving up one earned run on six hits with three strikeouts and no walks.

Diaz homers for lone run

Pirates catcher Elias Diaz hit a solo homer to account for the one run scored by hiss quad in Monday's shellacking. Corey Dickerson was 3-for-3 to help contribute, while Jordy Mercer was 2-for-3. Nick Kingham allowed seven runs (five earned) in three innings to take the loss.

Ivan Nova (4-5, 4.02 ERA) gets the start today for the Pirates, while the Dodgers counter with Clayton Kershaw (1-4, 2.84).

MLB Betting Trends


The over is 8-2 in the last 10 Pirates road games. Pittsburgh is 7-15 in Nova's last 22 road starts.

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 29-13 in their last 42 games overall. The under is 11-4-2 in the last 17 Los Angeles games on a Tuesday.


Kershaw is still struggling to find his elite form, but his pretty good is better than most pitchers' best. Against a struggling Pittsburgh offense, I'd be surprised if he doesn't have one of his better outings of the season. Take os Angeles to win here.and dont be afraid of the run line.
