First baseman Jesus Aguilar is having a very good start to his season leading the Marlins in homeruns with 9 and RBIs with 32, which is tied for second in the MLB. Left fielder Corey Dickerson is 19th in the MLB in batting average hitting .303 but has hit just one home run and driven in 8 runs. 

Pablo Lopez will get the ball for the Marlins and although he’s 0-3, he’s been very solid this season posting a 3.07 ERA in his 8 starts. Lopez is coming off his worst start of the season allowing 7 hits and 6 runs in just 4 ⅓ innings of work, given the loss as the Marlins were dominated by the Diamondbacks in an 11-3 loss.

It’s a question to who will take the mound but against the Marlins they’re able to generate plenty of runs and get the win at home. The Dodgers bats have been great, especially in the last five games where they’re averaging over 7 runs per game. Final score prediction, Dodgers win 7-4.
