They're batting for .236 AVG, have 419 runs scored in 867 hits and 101 home runs, ranking #27 in offense in the league behind the Los Angeles Angels. Jazz Chisholm Jr leads with 14 home runs, 45 RBI. Garret Cooper is batting for an average of .274.

Sandy Alcantara (11-5, 1.92 ERA) will be on the mound for the Marlins in the 3rd game of the series.

He has a 0-2 record with an ERA of 14.81 and 12 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Dodgers in his career.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers get here with a 83-36 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.30 runs per game and they're batting for .261 AVG, 614 runs scored in 1012 hits and 152 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league.

Probable Pitcher: Ryan Pepiot (1-0, 4.26 ERA)
Pepiot will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. The 24-year-old took a no-decision Tuesday in Milwaukee after giving up three runs over 4.2 innings and appeared headed for the bullpen with Dustin May (elbow) returning from the injured list this weekend. However, Pepiot will stick in the rotation for at least one more turn and perhaps more as Roberts contemplates a six-man rotation.
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Miami's last 8 games on the road.
Miami are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.
Miami are 5-15 SU in their last 20 games against an opponent in the National League.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Dodgers' last 7 games.
LA Dodgers are 16-3 SU in their last 19 games.
LA Dodgers are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games at home.
The Dodgers continue to be the most dominant team and have just recovered Dustin May who had an outstanding performance in his debut vs Marlins. To close this series they'll send Ryan Pepiot to the mound who has struggled in his last 2 starts allowing 7 runs in 8.1 innings pitched. The Marlins will try to avoid a sweep by sending their ace Sandy Alcantara who's having a great season but has struggled vs Dodgers in his career. The Marlins have scored only 1 run on this series so it's hard to trust them but with Alcantara on the mound the Dodgers won't score many runs so the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
