Pittsburgh Pirates vs Los Angeles Dodgers (By: Mulder)
Ryu will take place on the mound for the Dodgers and the Southpaw is 6-1 with a 1.52 ERA. He is on an incredble streak because he did not allow a run in his last 24 (!) innings. He has awesome control: 0.61 BB/9 and a nice 0.91 HR/9, 45.3 GB%.
He pitched already 7 innings against the Bucs this season: 2.57 ERA and last season: 1.50 ERA> 1.00 WHIP.
The Pirates cannot get much done against lefties as they hit a .276 wOBA against Southpaws ( 27th ).
For the Bucs RHP Musgrove will start who is 3-4 with a 3.67 ERA. He pitched a little better with a 7.33 K/9, 0.33 HR/9.
He posted this season a 1.35 ERA against the Dodgers but last season a 5.40 ERA> 1.40 WHIP against LA.
I see some vulnerabilities in his split>
Versus righties: .243 SLG> .224 wOBA
Versus lefties: .380 SLG> .301 wOBA
At home lefties rock him even harder: .524 SLG> .370 wOBA
And why is this good news for LA? They have a super deadly leftie lineup with Beaty, Muncy, Pederson, Bellinger and Seager.
The Dodgers are ( like always ) a great team against righties: .339 wOBA ( 6tth ).
Hence backing LA.
