San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers – 10:10 p.m. ET
By almost any measure, Anthony DeSclafani has had a surprisingly excellent season for the Giants. However, the one nut he can’t seem to crack is the Dodgers: Across three starts, the 31-year-old has allowed 15 runs — including one outing with 10 (!) — and he has yet to notch a win against them. If he can’t figure it out again, San Francisco could be in trouble early.
They could be in even more trouble if they can’t get to Walker Buehler, who has been magnificent lately, recording wins in nine of his last 12 starts, compiling a 1.75 ERA and 0.92 WHIP over that stretch. Two of those wins were against the Giants.
San Fran still boasts one of the best bullpens in the majors and L.A.’s has struggled recently, so we’ll focus on the Dodgers dominating the early part of the game instead.
Pick: Dodgers First 5 Innings -0.5 (-115)*
