The Dodgers are looking to win their 6th consecutive game tonight in Los Angeles. They are also looking to sweep the Pirates in a series that they really should take all 3 games. It would also give them a chance to gain a game on the Giants in the NL West tonight.
Looking to make up that ground, the Dodgers will send out left-handed pitcher Justin Bruihl to make the start as an opener. This is the second time that Bruihl will start as an opener with Los Angeles having to throw some bullpen games.
After Bruihl, the Dodgers will go with Mitch White for the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen. Dave Roberts had mentioned that White would take down most of the game earlier this week, though he was not sure if he would start.
