Another win for the Los Angeles Dodgers! The only problem? The San Francisco Giants won’t lose. We thought we asked the San Diego Padres to do us a favor? Guess they didn’t answer the call.
Nonetheless, the Dodgers have taken care of business, sweeping the Pads over the weekend and now swiping the first two games from the Arizona Diamondbacks as they go for the sweep on Wednesday night.
Maybe they’ll get lucky tonight with San Diego sending Joe Musgrove to the bump against the Giants. That’ll be the best pitching advantage they have in the four-game series.
But for now, the Dodgers need to focus on winning every game they possibly can, and another one tonight will be crucial heading into a much-needed day off on Thursday. Let’s take a look at the betting preview.

Dodgers Pitcher Today
Julio Urias (17-3, 2.98 ERA) will go up against Merrill Kelly (7-9, 4.30 ERA) in what’s yet another advantage for LA, but they can’t overlook Kelly, who’s pitched extremely well since late June.
Urias’ success speaks for itself. He could very well be a 20-game winner in 2021 and is among the league’s ERA leaders. He’s also given up just one earned run against the D-Backs in 11.2 innings pitched this year.
As for Kelly, the right-hander has lowered his ERA from 5.06 to 4.30 since June 21, hurling six quality starts over that span. Despite the fact the Dodgers have won all three games he’s pitched for Arizona this year, Kelly’s only allowed seven earned runs across 18.2 innings, good for a 3.38 ERA. That said, the Dodgers know they need to take care of business, so this will be the most difficult outing for Kelly against them this year.
