|When:||Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at 10:10 PM ET|
Reese Olson (4-7, 4.3 ERA) vs. Bobby Miller (10-3, 4.02 ERA)
Reese Olson has encountered difficulty during his 2023 season with Detroit, posting a 4-7 record and a 4.3 ERA over 92 innings. His low WHIP (1.14) suggests better control, as he only allowed 76 hits while striking out 91 batters while walking 29. He allowed 13 home runs this season which may present issues against Los Angeles’ power-heavy lineup; Olson has shown excellent control otherwise; his low WHIP indicates this and should keep runners off base effectively; however, his susceptibility to long balls may present issues against them; Olson must keep the ball low enough to induce ground balls rather than allow hard-hit balls that may leave the park
Bobby Miller of the Dodgers has had a strong season, with a 10-3 win-loss record and a 4.02 ERA over 107.1 innings. His 1.16 WHIP is similar to Olson’s, and he has 99 strikeouts and 30 walks to his name this season, with 11 home runs allowed. Miller brings in a robust record and a solid ERA. His strength lies in his ability to go deeper into games, giving the bullpen a break. However, his strikeout-to-walk ratio suggests room for improvement in control and putting batters away.
