Dodgers Have Enjoyed Some Afternoon Delight

The NL West rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants isn’t exactly as meaningful this season as it has been in recent memory. The Dodgers sit atop the division by a massive margin while the Giants are toiling away in the cellar. The Dodgers could also be getting a boost when these two teams clash Saturday, as LA is 9-2 in its past 11 afternoon games.

  • The home team is 36-15 in the past 51 matchups between the Dodgers and Giants.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Dodgers’ last 9 games.
  • The Giants are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against the NL West.

The Dodgers will send Rich Hill, who is streaking thanks to a streamlined delivery, to the bump on Saturday. The 12-year veteran has a stellar 1.42 ERA in 25.1 innings of work during the month of July while posting a 37/3 K/BB ratio. Since joining the Dodgers midway through last season, Hill has faced the Giants three times and surrendered just four earned runs.

Giants starter Ty Blach has been inconsistent for most of the season but the young lefty has fared well against the Dodgers in his career. Blach has faced the Dodgers four times (three starts and one relief appearance) with a 1.17 ERA and a 0.70 WHIP. This season, he has allowed just three runs in 12.0 innings against LA.
