Los Angeles Dodgers were the hot favourites to win the opening game of the ongoing three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. And that’s what happened, though the Dodgers were made to work hard and pushed to their limits, as Max Muncy inspired the Los Angeles Dodgers to a close 2-1 win over the Pirates.
LAD vs PBP Dream11 Prediction:
The middle contest of this three-game Major League Baseball (MLB) series will be played at the Dodger Stadium on early Wednesday morning (IST). After both teams shutting each other out in the first six innings, the Pirates drew first blood by scoring at the top of the seventh inning, but the Dodgers responded in a whiff with a run at the bottom of the 7th inning. Dodger scored again in the 8th inning and didn’t need to bat in the ninth with the Pirates being shut out.
