The Dodgers continue to stay hot offensively as they scored an average of 7 runs per game in their last 5 games. They have also won the last 7 games vs the Giants. Clayton Kershaw will get the ball for the Dodgers who hasn't been that great lately and allowed 4 runs in 4 innings in his last start against the Giants. The Giants will send Junis to the mound who has been solid this season and has allowed no more than 2 runs in each if his last 6 starts with the Giants winning 5 of those 6 games. This is a great spot for the Giants to get at least 1 win on this series. Take the Giants.
