Dodgers Score: Game Updates vs Pirates on Thursday, Betting Odds, J.D. Martinez Remains Out

The Los Angeles Dodgers are getting set for the rubber match of a three-game series against the Pirates on Thursday. We have an early 9:35 a.m. PST start time, as the Dodgers are heading back to Los Angeles after the game.

Julio Urias, the ace of the Dodgers, is taking the mound, coming off by far his worst outing of the season against the Chicago Cubs. He’ll hope to get back on track, as the Dodgers offense will look to do the same after their disappointing showing in Wednesday’s 8-1 loss. They’ll be going up against Pirates RHP Mitch Keller (more on him later).

Here’s the lineup the Dodgers are sending out to face Keller:

Mr. Utility Mookie Betts is getting the start at second base, while Jason Heyward remains slotted in that three-hole. J.D. Martinez remains out with his back issue, while Michael Busch is getting his third straight start.

After allowing four earned runs in his first start, he’s gone four straight starts allowing three or fewer runs, including allowing two or fewer runs three times.
