The teams will be hard-pressed to match last night’s 24 combined runs, with a pair of solid right-handers facing off.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies

Los Angeles may have finally broken out of its offensive slump, scoring a combined 23 runs in the last two games, including 15 in a Tuesday night victory over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.  “We hope to give the pitching staff a little confidence and let them know their offense is clicking,” outfielder Andre Ethier said.  “At the same time, it gives us a little confidence.”  The team averaged just 2.5 runs in its first 23 games after the All-Star break before this two-game outburst.  The Dodgers are still just 3-10 at Citizens Bank Park since 2008, which includes five postseason games.  The club is a dismal 2-8 as a road underdog of +125 to +150 this season (-520) and the total in those games is 4-6 O/U.  Los Angeles has won five of its last six games against the NL East, but still stand at 11-13 versus the division this year.

Cincinnati Reds at Houston Astros

Cincinnati is set to play the second game of this three-game series, which happens to be in the middle of playing 15 of 18 games versus NL Central opponents.  The Reds are in second place in the division for the sixth straight day after spending the previous 18 days on top of the standings.  “We’re trying not to scoreboard-watch too much, but it’s obvious that we do,” outfielder Jay Bruce said.  Cincinnati stands at 38-27 in night games this season (+1,130) with the total being 38-24 O/U in those contests.  The club also finds itself in an advantageous position, going 9-3 as a road underdog of +100 to +125 this year (+750), which is consistent to the 36-29 mark its posted over the last three seasons.

The Pirates tallied season-high totals in hits and runs last night, but the story is likely to change this afternoon.

Houston Astros at Pittsburgh Pirates

Houston’s seven-game win streak over the Pittsburgh Pirates ended on Saturday with a 12-6 loss at PNC Park.  “We kept batting back and it just got too deep,” Astros manager Brad Mills said.  “They were able to get to their bullpen and the last three guys in their bullpen are really tough.”  The pitching staff allowed the worst team in the league to set season highs in runs and hits (17).  Sunday’s game will be the third game of a six-game road trip for the team, with the Astros having a combined 11-3 mark against the opponents they will face.  The Astros 20-15 record versus the NL Central is the second-best within the division trailing only Cincinnati (26-15).  Despite having a 13-17 daytime record this season, bettors have picked up a slight profit (+140) and 12.5 units over the last three years.
