Los Angeles vs Washington: Dodgers Kershaw Faces Nationals Fister

Los Angeles vs Washington: Dodgers Kershaw Faces Nationals Fister

We get a possible 2014 MLB National League Playoff match-up as Washington is in Los Angeles for the second of a three games series. The Nationals have a big lead in the NL East while the Dodgers are trying to fend off the San Francisco Giants in the NL West. First pitch at Chavez Ravine is slated for 10:10 PM ET on September 2, 2014, from Dodger Stadium in sunny Southern California.

Los Angeles: Dodgers send their ace to the bump

All-World LHP Clayton Kershaw (16-3 ERA 1.73) looks to become the Majors first 17-game winner and get the Dodgers back on a winning track tonight. Kershaw has won his last four starts over Washington and, in two games last season and one this year, the Krushinator has given up just two runs over 22.2 innings pitched versus the Nationals. Including their 6-4 loss last night, Los Angeles (77-61) has dropped three of their last four games and their NL West lead is down to just two games now.

Washington: Nationals are cruising into National League playoffs

Though they have stumbled some, with a 3-4 record on their current nine game road trip, Washington (78-58) still owns a comfortable seven game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. The Nats now have their sights set on the #1 seed in the NL playoffs - they currently lead the Dodgers by two games in that tight race. Rock solid until recently, RHP Doug Fister (12-5 ERA 2.55) closed August by allowing nine runs (eight earned) on 17 hits over 11.2 innings in loses to the Giants and Phillies.

MLB Prediction: We were sure the price would be high but we still like the Dodgers here. Kershaw & Crew are -1.5 (+115) ATS and -185 straight up on the betting board at the topbet.eu. sportsbook. We've been cashing in on Kershaw all year - lay 500 units on the LA money line in this contest.
