Prediction:

For this matchup, the prediction is that the Los Angeles Dodgers will win. Here's why:

First, Tyler Glasnow has been exceptional this season, with a 6-3 record, a 3.04 ERA, and a 0.91 WHIP. His ability to keep hitters off balance and limit baserunners gives the Dodgers a significant edge in pitching.

Secondly, the Dodgers' offense is formidable, led by Shohei Ohtani (.322 AVG, 14 HR) and Teoscar Hernandez (38 RBI). Their potent lineup can take advantage of any mistakes by Jared Jones, who, despite a solid season, has a higher ERA (3.55) and WHIP (1.01) compared to Glasnow.

Moreover, the Dodgers have been consistent on the road, with a 17-11 record, and are coming off two strong wins against the Rockies. Their recent form and overall season performance indicate they are well-positioned to secure a victory in this game.

While the Pirates have shown flashes of competitiveness, their overall record and home performance suggest they may struggle against a top-tier team like the Dodgers. The Pirates' recent loss to the Blue Jays highlights their inconsistency.

Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers Moneyline (-185)
