Los Angeles Dodgers Analysis

• 90-57 Los Angeles Dodgers played Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park in Seattle in an effort to sweep the three-game set. • Lost seven of the first fourteen games of September after a strong August • Outlasted the Mariners 6-2 in 11 innings to clinch the NL West title • In the past two weeks, the Dodgers are hitting .271/.360/.443 with 22 extra-base hits, 16 home runs, and 420 at-bats. • Pitching stats show 4.19 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and .231 batting average against in that span. • Lance Lynn (11-11; 5.94 ERA; 1.40 WHIP) is projected to be the starter on Monday. • The Dodgers have a power ranking of 2, and are #2 for offense, scoring an average of 5.66 per game, and #15 for defense, giving up an average of 4.44 points per game. • Went 2-1 in their last 3 matchups against Detroit.

Lance Lynn's Experienced Presence Could Prove Advantageous in Upcoming Matchup

If Lance Lynn earns the start, I expect his experience to be an advantage. In his matchup against the Tigers in May, Lynn earned the win while allowing three runs (one earned) over six innings. Recent matchups with the Dodgers have seen Lynn's teams hold a slight advantage, with 20 hits (including three doubles and a home run) registering a 113 wRC+. The team has posted an 80 wRC+ when facing right-handed pitchers in the last ten days. If Lynn is on the mound, I believe his presence will be a strong factor in the game's outcome.
