Alex Bregman vs. Justin Turner

Alex Bregman (.190/.244/.381) 2 Home Runs, 2 Doubles, 5 RBI

Justin Turner (.387/.500/.677) 3 Home Runs, 12 RBI

Alex Bregman is an excellent infielder. He was one of the Astros top prospects with Carlos Correa and has been as advertised for the Astros. The problem is that he’s inconsistent. He’s a streaky hitter and is on the wrong side of that streak if you’re the Astros. He’s got a tremendous amount of upside so I wouldn’t take him lightly. But the truth is, with a lineup that has Bregman, Altuve, Springer, and Correa, you’re forced to pick your poison. I expect Roberts to challenge him the most out of that bunch.

Justin Turner is doing everything in his power to drive the Dodgers to their first championship in 29 years. It’s going to be great to watch two professional hitters like Altuve and Turner face off against each other this World Series. The Dodgers are going to need Turner to keep up his hot postseason to win this series. Turner leads the team in RBI, and it’s not even close.

Edge: Dodgers – The potential for Bregman to do damage is there. But there’s no better Dodger hitter right now than Justin Turner.
