Simulating the Dodgers’ 2020 season: Games 49, 50, 51 vs. Cleveland (True Blue LA)

This is the 37th installment of an ongoing series, where my dad and I will simulate each game on the Dodgers schedule until real Dodger baseball returns. Catch up on the rest of the series here!

Last time out, Walker Buehler delivered a gem in a convincing 10-3 win over the Phillies, securing a series win. Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, A.J. Pollock and Will Smith all went yard, too: it was a good game for the NL West leaders.

We’ll have a pair of lefties on the mound to kick off this series. The first game will feature David Price (7-1, 3.64 ERA) against Mike Clevinger (2-2, 1.77 ERA), while the second will see Julio Urías (4-2, 3.78 ERA) face Carlos Carrasco (2-3, 6.49 ERA). Finally, Ross Stripling (1-2, 3.62 ERA) will take on Aaron Civale (2-6, 7.23 ERA).

Corey Seager will miss this series with an injury suffered when sliding into second on a double last week, but will be back for the next series against Colorado.
