Kershaw, Dodgers Look To Avoid Being Swept By Giants

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants will clash on Wednesday afternoon for the 10th time this season. The Dodgers are the only team in the MLB that the Giants have a winning record against and look for a three-game sweep, their sixth straight win overall, against the Dodgers at AT&T Park. However, the Giants will be facing off against maybe the best pitcher in baseball.

Shark Bites
  • Brandon Belt is 3-for-51 with 27 strikeouts in his career against Clayton Kershaw.
  • The Giants have held opponents to 2.2 rpg during their current 5-game winning streak.
  • The Dodgers are 2-10 against the runline in their past 12 games against the Giants.

Clayton Kershaw has already faced the Giants twice this season, with the lefty posting a 2.77 ERA with 12 strikeouts and one walk. Kershaw has posted some gaudy numbers at AT&T Park, as he has a lifetime 1.36 ERA and a 0.79 WHIP in 19 appearances in San Francisco.

Johnny Cueto will be making his third start of the season against the Dodgers when he challenges Kershaw on Wednesday. Cueto has a 4.15 ERA through his first two starts against LA this year while allowing the opposing squad to hit a collective .250. Cueto had a rough first outing against the Dodgers in a Giants uniform last season but has since posted a stellar 2.27 ERA and has only allowed 10 runs in six starts.
