The Los Angeles Dodgers very much enjoyed their East Coast road trip right now, as they’re fresh off sweeping the New York Mets after taking two of three from Philadelphia.

After being forced to wait until extra innings to win the their first two games vs the Mets, the Dodgers pulled out all the stops in primetime on Sunday night, crushing five home runs and tallying 14 runs to complete the sweep in Queens.

While the Phillies and Mets proved to be stiff competition for the Dodgers, they’ll catch a little break in that department in this next series. After all, they’ll face the Pirates, one of the worst teams in MLB who are a lousy 1-9 in their last 10 games.

With that being said, the Dodgers are in no place to get complacent, as they’re still four games behind the Giants. They need to take care of business vs the Pirates.

Dodgers Pitcher Today

With all the injuries to their rotation, the Dodgers still haven’t announced a starter. Andre Jackson last pitched Tuesday, so maybe he’s in line to start? Stay tuned.

The Pirates will roll with Steven Brault, who just recently returned to make his season debut after being sidelined for the last several months with a lat strain. The 29-year-old lefty has made two starts in 2021, allowing three runs on eight hits with eight strikeouts in nine innings.

Dodgers vs Pirates Prediction Today

While Brault could present some challenges, it’s hard to bet against the Dodgers with the way they’re bats are rolling right now. Not to mention, the big guns in their bullpen should be rested after the blowout win on Sunday night. Look for Los Angeles to win this one, 6-3.
