Why you should back the Dodgers
Los Angeles has been dominant this season, combining a lights-out pitching staff with one of the best offenses in the game. Lefty Julio Urias (2-0, 3.86 ERA) is scheduled to be on the hill in this matchup. One of the team's leading hitters is rookie second baseman Zach McKinstry, who has hits in six of the team's past nine games. In the key weekend set at San Diego, McKinstry was 4-for-10 with two RBIs. For the season, he is hitting .314 with five doubles, three homers and 14 RBIs in 16 games. He has a .617 slugging percentage.
First baseman Max Muncy is also off to a fast start to the season, and entered the series hitting .302. In 16 games, he has doubled twice, tripled once and homered three times, driving in 10 runs. In 15 career games against Seattle, he has six hits with three of them home runs, and has driven in five. He has a .455 slugging percentage against the Mariners.
Why you should back the Mariners
Like the Dodgers, Seattle has also been playing well. The Mariners will send left-hander Marco Gonzales (1-1, 8.22 ERA) to the hill. After a rough start to the season, Gonzales was solid in his third start of the year, holding Baltimore to just two runs and three hits over five innings. He struck out five, while walking two. He started one game against the Dodgers last season, picking up a no decision after limiting Los Angeles to one earned run and five hits over seven innings. He struck out nine and did not walk a batter.
Right fielder Mitch Haniger leads Seattle in hitting with a .319 batting average. In the two previous series against Houston and Baltimore, Haniger was 12-for-28 (.429) with two doubles, one triple, two homers and nine RBIs. In nine career games against Los Angeles, he is batting .250 with two homers and six RBIs. He has drawn seven walks and struck out nine times.
