Great Pitching Duel in Dodgers-Giants

Madison Bumgarner

The pitching at AT&T Park has been something to see so far this season, and fans in the Bay Area can expect more of the same Saturday. Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Ross Stripling took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Friday, and Clayton Kershaw will take the ball for the Dodgers while Madison Bumgarner counters on the bump for the Giants.

  • The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 games vs. a left-handed starter.
  • The UNDER is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
  • The Dodgers are 4-0 in Kershaw's last 4 road starts.

San Fran has won 10 of its last 12 games versus division rival L.A. at AT&T Park. Kershaw was in midseason form on Opening Day, striking out nine and holding the San Diego Padres scoreless over seven innings in a 15-0 romp. The Texas native is 16-7 with a 1.54 ERA in 30 career starts against the Giants, including six complete games and five shutouts.

Bumgarner earned the win in his Opening Day start versus Milwaukee despite battling flu-like symptoms. The 2014 World Series MVP allowed three runs and five walks over five innings.
