Dodgers Score: Game Updates vs Mets on Tuesday, Betting Odds; Mookie Betts Out, James Outman Leading Off
The 8-9 Dodgers are getting set for game two of a three-game series against the New York Mets in Los Angeles. The Dodgers fell in game one by a score of 8-6, thanks to some shaky pitching and lack of batting help from the bottom of the lineup (outside of Austin Wynns).
However, that game is officially behind us, and on Tuesday, Clayton Kershaw is taking the mound vying for win No. 200 in his career. On the mound for the Mets is RHP Tylor Megill, who’s 3-0 with a 2.25 ERA this season. Here’s the lineup the Dodgers are sending out behind Kershaw for this potential momentous occasion:
Mookie Betts is out on paternity leave, so rookie James Outman is getting the nod in the leadoff spot. David Peralta is getting the start in left field, while Jason Heyward is replacing Betts in right field. Austin Barnes is back in at catcher with Kershaw on the mound.
Betting Odds and More Stats
The Dodgers are looking to avoid going two games under .500 for the first time since the 2018 season. They’ll need Kershaw to be Kershaw in order to get back to .500.
