Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Tampa Bay Rays Analysis

Los Angeles Dodgers enter this game boasting an offensive arsenal that could consistently produce runs. Even with their lower batting average of 0.236, which may appear inferior to other teams, the Dodgers have scored 279 runs this season and hit 82 homers. At-bat discipline and power hitting contribute to their ability to generate offense. Although their batting average may not stand out, their on-base percentage of 0.326 shows they excel at drawing walks and reaching base safely. Further, their slugging percentage of 0.450 represents their ability to hit for extra bases and score runs.

Noah Syndergaard will start as starting pitcher for the Dodgers this season. Although Syndergaard only owns a 1-3 win-loss record, his performances have shown glimpses of his true potential. He has recorded 30 strikeouts over 41.1 innings pitched, showing his ability to generate swings and misses easily. However, Syndergaard has struggled with consistency over his career, resulting in an ERA of 5.88 and a WHIP of 1.33. These numbers demonstrate his ability sometimes to dominate opposing hitters while at other times struggling to keep fighting teams off the scoreboard. Syndergaard will look to show his skills and recover with an impressive outing against a formidable Rays lineup.

The Tampa Bay Rays boast an effective offensive unit that has consistently produced runs throughout their season, scoring an impressive 304 runs at an outstanding batting average of 0.271 with an on-base percentage of 0.346 that displays their disciplined approach at bat while making intense contact and hitting with power; their slugging rate of 0.501 showcases this talent of shooting for both management and extra bases.

On the pitching front, Jalen Beeks will start for the Rays as their starting pitcher. While he only holds a 1-2 W-L record so far, Beeks has shown great promise through 22 strikeouts in 25 innings pitched – offering his ability to miss bats and keep opposing hitters off balance. Unfortunately, Beeks has struggled with consistency issues; leading to an ERA of 4.68 and WHIP of 1.2; Beeks’ goal will be to utilize his repertoire to counteract the Dodgers’ potent lineup and keep them at bay.
