Dodgers Game Today: Dodgers vs Phillies Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV Channel for Aug. 12
By Adam Weinrib
Cody Bellinger and the Dodgers made light work of the “hottest team in baseball” again on Wednesday in Philadelphia, fighting through rainstorms to bash the Phils 8-2, powered by a pair of Belli Blasts.
It’s safe to say a statement has now been made, especially considering a good degree of the damage came off Kyle Gibson, someone the Dodgers pivoted away from at the trade deadline.
Now that the series has been secured, it’s time to bury the home team.
Any time you’re matched up with a playoff contender while your chief rivals, the Giants, get to mess around with the lowly Diamondbacks, there’s no opportunity to take your foot off the gas pedal.
So, let’s get a sweep, shall we?
Certainly, Dodgers fans are feeling a bit better after their methodical dissection of the red-hot Phils.

Dodgers Pitcher Today
Sorry it took so long for this preview to drop! We were waiting on a starter, and it’s…reliever Mitch White. Alrighty then.
White brings a 3.75 ERA and 25 whiffs in 24 innings to the table on Thursday, and though we were harsh on him during his early-season appearances, he’s really been quite viable as he’s ridden the roller coaster to Triple-A and back.
The Phillies will counter with the nasty Ranger Suarez (5-3, 0.98), who might be here for a good time, not a long time, before he gives way to the bullpen.

Dodgers vs Phillies Prediction Today
Why predict anything other than a sweep? It won’t be as clean as the last two games, but White just needs to deliver three innings of one-run baseball, hopefully matching with Suarez, prior to the superior Dodgers getting an extended crack at the Phillies bullpen.
