Dodgers Vs. Pirates Game Preview: Dodgers Looking For 4th Straight Win

After winning the first two games of their four game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Dodgers will go for the series win Wednesday. Los Angeles has won three straight games overall and five of their last six.

The Dodgers will send Clayton Kershaw to the mound Wednesday. He has a 10-6 record on the season, including wins in his last three starts. It will be the second time Kershaw has faced the Pirates this season. He won his first start against Pittsburgh, allowing one earned run over seven innings while striking out seven.

Pittsburgh will counter with Wandy Rodriguez. It will be the second time the Dodgers have seen Rodriguez this season, but the first since he was traded from Houston to Pittsburgh. Rodriguez pitched well the first time he faced Los Angeles, shutting out the Dodgers over seven innings.

The Dodgers got off to a good start to the series, winning the first game 5-4 on Monday before cruising to an 11-0 win Tuesday. First pitch for Wednesday's game three is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. PT.
