Turner powers LA to win
Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner went 4-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, a walk, two runs and two RBIs in Sunday's 9-6 victory at Colorado. Matt Kemp finished 2-for-4 and scored a run. David Freese was 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Chris Taylor was 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBIs. Enrique Hernandez ended the contest 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs. Rich Hill picked up the win as he allowed four earned runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and no walks over five innings. Scott Alexander threw a perfect ninth for his third save of the season.
Reds edged by Padres
Cincinnati was unable to complete a home sweep over San Diego on Sunday as it fell 7-6. Jose Peraza ended the game 2-for-5 with a double, two runs and two RBIs. Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with a 3-run homer plus a walk. Patrick Ervin was 0-for-1 with a pair of walks. Tucker Barnhart was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Billy Hamilton finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored. Raisel Iglesias took the loss as he gave up one earned run on one hit in one inning of relief.
MLB Betting Trends
The Dodgers are 11-4 in their last 15 games overall. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 LA games.
The Reds are 5-13 in their last 18 games. The over is 6-2 in the last eight Cincinnati home games.
Los Angeles is coming off a solid series at Colorado and now faces a much weaker foe in the Reds, which could leave it open to a letdown. But I trust Wood in this matchup and the Dodgers should score off Reed, who has struggled as an MLB starting pitcher. Go with LA on a runline bet here.
