Sunday night baseball and we will see the San Francisco Giants take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 8:05 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised on ESPN.
Over/ Under: 8.5 U -120
This is game 3 of a 3 game series between these National League West foes. The Giants have taken the first two games in this series and have closed the gap in the National League West to just a half game behind the Dodgers. The Dodgers came into this series having lost 3 of 4 to Texas, so it goes without saying that they are not playing good ball at the moment and they really need this game or they will relinquish their lead in the NL West.
The Giants rank 17th in scoring (4.10 rpg), 4th in hitting (.268) and 21st in homers (56), while on the mound they are 9th in ERA (3.65) and 11th in WHIP (1.24). LA ranks 12th in scoring (4.23 rpg), 13th in hitting (.255) and 3rd in homers (87), while on the mound they are 4th in ERA (3.38) and 3rd in WHIP (1.19).
Getting the ball for the Giants tonight will be Tim Lincecum, who is 7-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 13 starts this year, while on the road he has gone 2-1 with a 4.88 ERA. Time has gone 11-8 with a 4.41 ERA in 20 appearances (27 starts) vs the Dodgers, while at Chavez Ravine he is 5-6 with a 3.93 ERA in 14 games (13 starts).
Taking the hill for the Dodgers tonight will be Brett Anderson, who is 2-4 with a 3.43 ERA in 13 starts this year, while at home he has gone 1-1 with a 3.32 ERA. Anderson is 0-4 with a 5.67 ERA in 6 career starts vs the Giants.
Pick: I will go with the Dodgers in this one as I just do not see them getting swept at home. Both Starters has struggled vs their opponents tonight, but I see Brett Anderson having the better time of it in this one. Brett has pitched well at home this year, while tim has not pitched well on the road. The Dodgers get one back tonight.
