When it Rains it Pours - Will the Dodgers Lose Again?

Another historic streak continued in the major leagues last night when the Giants outlasted the Dodgers to deal the World Series favorites an 11th consecutive loss, their longest such streak since the franchise moved to Los Angeles.

SHARK BITES
  • The Dodgers are 3-10 SU in their last 13 games on the road against the Giants.
  • The Dodgers are 0-9 SU in their last 9 games against right-handed starting pitchers.
  • The Dodgers are hitting .208 as a team in the month of September.

Clayton Kershaw (16-3, 2.15 ERA) will give the (feeling) Blue Crew a good chance to plug the leak tonight but as his last start implies, nothing is guaranteed. The man whom most consider to be the favorite to win the NL Cy Young Award at the end of the season was blown up for four runs in just 3.2 innings of work in his last appearance and he has dropped a decision against the Giants this year.

His team has lost just once this season when he’s started on the road, however, and his 1.45 ERA away from home is bested only by D-backs breakout star Robbie Ray.

The Giants will counter Kersh with Johnny Cueto (7-7, 4.43 ERA) and while he’s regressed badly this year, the two-time all-star is more than talented enough to shut down a batting lineup that’s been one of the worst in the bigs the last few weeks and he’s been pretty good in his last two starts.

You’ll have to lay massive chalk on the Dodgers tonight if you expect their streak to end but if you follow the trends and back the Giants in the Bay Area, there’s a pot of gold waiting for you at the end of the rainbow.
