Hernandez, Turner power Dodgers

Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a solo home run Friday night to help the hosts to a 3-2 victory over Arizona. Enrique Hernandez added a pinch-hit solo home run. Dylan Floro picked up the win in relief as he struck out one in a perfect inning. Kenley Jansen recorded his 33rd save as he struck out one in a spotless inning.

Goldschmidt has strong game in loss

Steven Souza Jr. was 2-for-4 with a run scored from the leadoff spot for the D-backs in last night's loss. Paul Goldschmidt was 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBIs. Zack Greinke suffered the loss as he allowed three earned runs on six hits with five strikeouts and a walk over 7 1/3 innings.

Patrick Corbin (10-5, 3.15 ERA) will start today for Arizona, while LA counters with Kershaw (6-5, 2.39).

MLB Betting Trends


The under is 6-1-1 in Corbin's last eight road starts. Arizona is 1-7 in Corbin's last eight starts versus the Dodgers.

Los Angeles

The under is 8-3-1 in the last 12 Dodgers home games. Los Angeles is 54-16 in Kershaw's last 70 home starts.


Corbin has had a fantastic season, but has had problems beating the Dodgers in his career. Going head-to-head with Kershaw won't make it any easier. With Kershaw back on top of his game, I'm going with the favored hosts tonight.
