One Day after hitting on the Over in Game I’m going to back to the well. I like Blake Snell a lot but I see some danger signs. First and foremost the Dodgers lineup is on fire and brimming with confidence. Also Snell has been up and down this postseason. He pitched well in his first game against Toronto which I’m going to just throw out. His next 3 starts were against the Yankees and Astros who more comparable to L.A. In those starts he went 1-2, pitching 14 innings and giving up 7 earned runs and 4 home runs. He’s also pitched bad in his 3 starts against National League teams this season giving up 9 earned and another 5 home runs to the Marlins and Mets.
On the other side I have no confidence in Tony Gonsolin to get through the Rays lineup more than once unscathed. Kershaw pitched lights out last night so the Rays are chomping at the bit to get at Gonsolin early and get into the Dodger bullpen which I think they will.
Look for another high scoring game and for this game to hit double digits for the second night in a row. I’m betting the over again. The Pick: Take The Over
