Kershaw Has Continued To Befuddle Giants

Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will make his second consecutive start against the San Francisco Giants when the two squads start a three-game set Monday. Kershaw went 7.0 innings of one-run ball in his last outing against the Giants, which means the lefty now has a career 1.60 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP in 36 career appearances against San Fran.  

Shark Bites
  • Brandon Belt is 3-for-51 with 27 strikeouts in his career against Clayton Kershaw.
  • The Giants are 3-10 SU in their last 13 games on the road against the Dodgers.
  • The visiting team is 2-6 SU and 1-7 against the runline in the last 8 games between the Dodgers and Giants.

Johnny Cueto will oppose Kershaw for the Giants, as the right-hander looks to find some consistency. Through his first five starts, Cueto has a 5.10 ERA and has surrendered 1.8 home runs per nine innings, a dramatic drop-off from his stellar 2.79 ERA and 0.6 HR/9 last season. In five appearances against the Dodgers last season, Cueto posted a 2.67 ERA and only surrendered one dinger.

Justin Turner has cemented himself as one of the most consistent batters in the MLB, as the third baseman has hit .433 during his current 16-game hitting streak. The Giants’ bats have been struggling all season but they really slumped against the Dodgers. During their four-game set earlier this season, the Giants hit just .223 with 25 strikeouts and eight walks.
