The San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will meet again to play a 4-game series at the Dodger Stadium. The Giants won their last series against the Brewers before the All-Star break while the Dodgers destroyed the Angels twice in a short 2-game series. The Giants are 3-2 vs Dodgers so far this season.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants get here with a 48-43 record and have won 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.80 runs per game and they're batting for .238 AVG, 416 runs scored in 689 hits and 105 home runs, ranking #3 in offense in the league behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Joc Pederson leads the team with 17 home runs and 41 RBI. Yastrzemski is batting for an average of .269.
Defensively they are allowing 4.24 runs per game and rank #14 in the league. Carlos Rodon allowed 1 run across 5 innings against the Dodgers. He leads the pitching staff with a 2.66 ERA, 131 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded.
Carlos Rodon (8-5, 2.66 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. Rodon reported a blood blister and a split nail to a finger on his pitching hand after his most recent start last Thursday against the Brewers. Despite the fact that neither issue was a major concern, Rodon chose to err on the side of caution by withdrawing from Tuesday's All-Star Game and using the break to recover. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 3.52 and 19 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Dodgers in his career.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers get here with a 54-29 record and have won 9 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.13 runs per game and they're batting for .253 AVG, 405 runs scored in 693 hits and 102 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .303 AVG. and 18 home runs. Trea Turner has 59 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.26 runs per game and rank #2 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 1.62 ERA, 80 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded.
Probable Pitcher: Mitch White (1-2, 4.20 ERA)
White will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Dodgers. White took the loss in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Cardinals, allowing six runs on ten hits and two walks in five innings with three strikeouts. The six runs allowed exceeded the total from his last four starts combined, and his ERA jumped nearly a full run from 3.38 to 4.20.
San Francisco are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National League.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Francisco's last 6 games against an opponent in the National League West Division division.
LA Dodgers are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games at home.
LA Dodgers are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games against an opponent in the National League.
These are two of the best offenses in the league so expect some exciting matchups. The Dodgers have been outstanding at home as they have won their last 7 games there. They'll send Mitch White to the mound for the first of the series who was pounded by the Cardinals in his last start. The Giants have struggled on the road lately losing 8 of their last 12 games but they'll send their best pitcher Carlos Rodon who has allowed only 2 runs in his last 14 innings pitched and dominated the Dodgers earlier this season holding them to zero runs across 6 innings. The Giants have the better pitcher on the mound so we get great value with them as underdogs. Take the Giants.
