MLB Expert Picks: Yankees @ Dodgers, 10:40 PM

stadium on Tuesday night. Derek Jeter's movie-like weekend return to action has offered the New York Yankees much awaited pleasure. Hollywood is not far from where the Yankees captain will play next against the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. Jeter had homered in the first at-bat on Sunday in a 6-5 win over Tampa Bay. He played the shortstop as he returned after recovery from his injured ankle on July 11 in his season debut against Kansas City for the first time. Jeter has hit safely in all of the six games against the LA Dodgers with nine hits in 25 at_bats.

Baseball predictions expert reports that New York (55-50) had safely avoided a three-game whitewash with recently acquired Alfonso Soriano’s single in the winning run in the ninth inning. The Yankees are injury-plagued and they have struggled offensively all the season and now own an AL-low .371 slugging percentage. They will face Zack Greinke who is at 8-3 with 3.89 ERA tonight and MLB ERA leader Clayton Kershaw the next night. Los Angeles (56-48) had already won six consecutive starts by Greinke before he gave up four runs in total seven innings on Thursday in a 5-2 loss to Cincinnati. He was at 5-0 with a 2.17 ERA in total seven home outings before that game. The right-hander is now at 2-4 with a 5.71 ERA in total eight starts against the Yankees, out of which seven are coming for Kansas City between 2004-08. Robinson Cano is now at 6 for 16 against him but Cano has hit an average of .160 with a RBI in his last seven games. The Dodgers have bounced back from Greinke's defeat collecting three wins against the Reds over the weekend. Their starters produced a pair of runs over 21 2-3 innings, in which Chris Capuano pitched 6 2-3 in Sunday's 1-0, 11-inning victory.

MLB weekly picks expert informs that the walk-off homer collected by Yasiel Puig gave him a 10 in total four dozen games along with 23 RBIs and an average of .372 . The Dodgers are currently at a major league-best 26-6 since June 22 having collected nine wins in 10 games. The Dodgers’ offense, however, only yielded nine runs in the four-game series with Cincinnati. Los Angeles has already split three-dozen games while facing left-hand starters as it meets veteran Andy Pettitte who is at 7-8 with a 4.39 ERA. Pettitte will try his best to avoid losing three consecutive starts for the second time in a pair of months. He allowed fewer than four runs for the first time in eight outings on Wednesday. He had surrendered two in six innings of a 3-1 defeat at Texas. Pettitte is now at 2-0 with a 3.94 ERA in five starts against the Dodgers. Carl Crawford is hitting an average of .326 against Pettitte and could possibly return tonight after missing the last two games because of a high temperature. The Yankees will probably activate infielder Jayson Nix, who is out since July 1 due to a strained right hamstring. These clubs have split a June 19 doubleheader in New York. The Yankees had last visited the Dodger Stadium when they collected win in two of three games on June 25-27 in 2010.
