No Matter The Record, Dodgers & Giants Play Tight Games

The rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants has been the most active in the MLB this season with the two clubs already meeting seven times. Throw the records out, as four of those games were ultimately decided by just one run, including three of the four played in San Francisco. The Dodgers and Giants kick off another three-game set at AT&T Park on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games on the road against the Giants
  • The Dodgers are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games after a loss.
  • Buster Posey is batting .395 with 7 RBIs during the month of May.

Brandon McCarthy will be making his first start since going on the DL with a dislocated shoulder. McCarthy and his 3.10 ERA will be a welcome return to a Dodgers rotation that has already started seven different pitchers on the season. The 11-year veteran has struggled against the Giants lineup, however, as the current San Fran roster has a collective career .357 batting average against the righty.

Matt Cain will be hoping that another game against the Dodgers can get his season back on track. Cain threw six scoreless innings against the Dodgers on April 24 but has since allowed 20 hits and 13 runs in just three starts.
