Beating the Dodgers at Home is a Near Impossible Task

19-3 in the month of July, the Dodgers are on an incredible roll. Looking to complete the sweep of the Giants, Los Angeles will line up against Madison Bumgarner this evening with an eighth consecutive win on the line for the Boys of Summer.

SHARK BITES
  • The Giants are 6-13 SU in their last 19 games.
  • The Dodgers are 14-2 SU in their last 16 games at Dodger Stadium.
  • The Giants are 1-6 SU in Madison Bumgarner’s last 7 starts against the Dodgers.

Earning his first victory of the season in his last start, Bumgarner was finally treated to some run support but shouldn’t expect that to continue. The Giants have the big-league’s second worst offense and their 11-run outburst in Bummy’s last outing doubled the amount of run support he’d received in six previous starts.

Combine that with the Dodgers’ NL-leading 2.88 ERA since the all-star break and you get a frustrating evening for anyone on the side of the Bay Area ball team.

They will, however, have the benefit of facing Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-6, 4.12 ERA), the Dodgers’ worst starter. The South Korean hasn’t been able to rediscover the form that saw him go 28-15 in his first 56 major-league starts and if the Giants get to him early, they have a chance to sneak away from Tinsel Town with a win.
