The Los Angeles Dodgers have been playing some excellent baseball of late, but due to the rival Giants continuing to rack up the wins in San Francisco, LA has yet to reclaim the division lead.
The Dodgers will once again try to take it to the New York Mets, who they needed extra innings to defeat last night despite the fact that the month of August has not been very kind to Luis Rojas’ club.
With the stage shifting to primetime on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, Dave Roberts and the rest of his crew will look to keep their momentum against a New York team searching for answers.
LA is sending one of their aces to the mound. Will that be enough to give them the win? Or will the Mets wake up and try to swipe a game right out from under Roberts’ watchful eye?

Dodgers Pitcher Today
The Dodgers will start Max Scherzer, who has allowed just two runs in 10.1 innings with Los Angeles. In addition to the fact that Scherzer has pitched well in Los Angeles, he hasn’t lost a start at Citi Field in years thanks to his dominant performances in Washington.
The Mets will counter with Carlos Carrasco, who has not received a decision in any of his three starts this year. While the 34-year-old hasn’t provided the Mets with a ton to write home about, his history in Cleveland suggests he is capable of shutting down even the staunchest of lineups.

Dodgers vs Mets Prediction Today
While Carrasco could turn back the clock and cause trouble for the Dodgers, this team should be expected to take home the victory today. With some clutch hitting from a lineup that is starting to come into form next to Scherzer, LA has plenty of firepower for the Mets to contend with.
Dodgers 6, Mets 2.
