Los Angeles Dodgers @ Miami Marlins Game Preview Wednesday August 21st, 7:10 PM EST (Game 124)


With their series tied at a game a piece, the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers will dig into game three of their four game series. The first two games have been close, for the most part, and have come down to bullpen performances. The Dodgers major league leading bullpen struggled on Monday, but bounced back in their win last night.

Bold Prediction: Greinke has been pitching well of late and with the Dodgers lineup on fire, they have no trouble pouncing on Eovaldi. Eovaldi allows six earned runs on ten hits in just 5 innings of work. Stanton goes deep for the Marlins, keeping his hot streak alive, but that won’t be enough offense for the Marlins. The Dodgers win 8-3!
