Dodgers vs Angels Probable Pitchers

Clayton Kershaw (8-4, 2.95) is scheduled to start for the Dodgers against fellow left-hander Reid Detmers (1-5, 4.48). Both will be pitching on five days of rest.

Kershaw vs Detmers

Clayton Kershaw
Reid Detmers
8-4 Record 1-5
2.95 ERA 4.48
3.52 xERA 4.34
1.11 WHIP 1.46
4.67 SO/W 2.92

Kershaw is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in three June starts. He had a no-decision against the Chicago White Sox at home last Wednesday when he allowed two runs and six hits in six innings with five strikeouts and two walks.

The Angels have had plenty of trouble with Kershaw over the years. He has a 9-2 record against them in 15 career starts along with a 2.13 ERA.

Kershaw, who has NL Cy Young odds of +1200, is 4-3 with a 3.97 ERA in eight starts on the road this season and 5-3 with a 2.85 ERA in nine starts in night games. He has nine quality starts in 14 turns and the Dodgers are 9-5 when he pitches.

Detmers notched just his second quality start in 12 outings this season last Wednesday against the Texas Rangers on the road but did not factor in the decision. He gave up one run on three hits over six innings while striking out eight and walking one.

Detmers has lost both career starts versus the Dodgers with a 9.35 ERA.

In six starts in Anaheim this season, Detmers has a 1-2 mark and 4.65 ERA. He is 1-4 with a 4.57 ERA in nine starts at night. The Angels have a 4-8 record when he takes the mound.

Batting Average vs Starting Pitchers

Dodgers Batters Batting Average vs Reid Detmers
J.D. Martinez .333
Will Smith .250
Chris Taylor .250
Mookie Betts .000
Freddie Freeman .000
Angels Batters Batting Average vs Clayton Kershaw
Mike Trout .200
Luis Rengifo .200
Jared Walsh .167
Brandon Drury .136
Hunter Renfroe .120
Shohei Ohtani .000
Taylor Ward .000
Michael Stefanic .000
Chad Wallach .000
Andrew Velazquez .000

Players on the Dodgers active roster are a combined 3 for 16 (.188) against Detmers.

The Dodgers caught a break when Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon was placed on the injured list Monday with a left wrist contusion. Rendon has a .387 lifetime batting average against Kershaw, going 12 for 31 with one double and two home runs.

Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani, on the other hand, is hitless in eight at-bats with three strikeouts and first baseman Brandon Drury is 3 for 22 (.136) with a double, two homers and 12 strikeouts.

Dodgers vs Angels Betting Outlook

Ohtani and Mike Trout hit back-to-back home runs to lead the Angels over the Royals on Sunday. Jared Walsh also connected for Los Angeles.

Trout and Drury had two hits each. Ohtani drove in two runs and is a -250 favorite in the AL MVP odds.

The Dodgers got two hits each from Will Smith, David Peralta and James Outman in Sunday’s loss to the Giants. Third baseman Chris Taylor missed his second straight game with a bruised right knee and is questionable for Tuesday.

The Dodgers aren’t playing well. Yet it’s hard to ignore Kershaw’s dominance of the Angels throughout his career.
