It was not quite like the assault on Tuesday, however, the Dodgers opened another blowout win over the Miami Marlins night in Marlins Park. On the insides of a 15-1 win, the Dodgers didn’t slow down and slammed the Marlins by a score of 9-1. Justin Turner opened the scoring with a solo shot Eliaser Hernandez and the Dodgers kept assaulting.
The offense provedn’t the ones getting following it, either. For a second consecutive night, the Dodgers acquired output from their pitching and offensive components. Clayton Kershaw was on fire and got through half of this match with a perfect match. He left the contest with just two hits yielded and 10 strikeouts. If their rotation can fire on all cylinders such as this come October, then the Dodgers are going to be a hopeless outside in the postseason.
We have to keep in mind that this was the Miami Marlins which Dustin May and Kershaw chewed up and spit out, though. The Marlins are the worst offense in the significant leagues and they have struggled to score against a great deal of pitchers. Nevertheless, Kershaw has frustrated a lot of hitters and May will be the very best pitching prospect in the Dodgers’ system.
Next up from the turning to the Dodgers is Walker Buehler. He is another choice in their rotation that’s deadly on the bulge as well. There are not a lot of rotations in baseball who can lose two associates and still fire away like this.
The Indians have success without Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco, and likewise, the Dodgers remain flourishing without Rich Hill and Ross Stripling. Buehler will get the call against Caleb Smith, who’s expecting that the Dodger bats are done with hitting on the laces off the ball this afternoon. Head below for our free Dodgers vs. Marlins select.

The Yankees sent Caleb Smith into the Marlins in part of this Giancarlo Stanton deal a couple of Years Back. He’s been showing some steady progress and continues to be a bright spot in an otherwise down season for the Marlins. After posting an ERA of 7.71 in nine appearances with the Yankees in 2017, Smith improved on that in his first season in Miami. Smith submitted a 4.19 ERA in 16 starts and has again improved on that figure, at least so far.
Having a major blow late in the summer, he’s going to have an ERA under 4.00 for the first time in his young significant league career. His last outing is you to forget, with allowed 10 hits and 6 earned runs in 4.2 innings against the Braves. In his past few outings, Smith has submitted a 5.94 ERA along with 1.56 WHIP at 16.2 innings. Against this Dodgers’ offense, he must expect to perform better than Yamamoto and Hernandez, however that still may not deliver the Marlins close to a win .
Walker Buehler has his strategy against the Marlins previously. They are hitting just .211 without the home runs against him in 57 at-bats. In general, not too many clubs have been able to strike Buehler hard this year. It isn’t just the awful Marlins’ offense, who are dead last in the majors in runs scored per match. Buehler published an ERA of 2.21 and also 1.13 WHIP in his previous three outings.
He has surrendered just 1-run at 15 innings of work and allowed 1 or no runs in three of the past four starts. The Dodgers are all rolling and that I still don’t see it stopping on Thursday. Do not expect a beatdown such as we watched the last two days, however, the Dodgers probably have control throughout this match for a 6-3 or even 5-2 success.
