The Los Angeles Dodgers visit AT&T Park to battle the rival San Francisco Giants in Tuesday action.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are shooting for back to back National League West titles and it’s been so far, so good as they currently sit atop the division. The Dodgers maintained their position with a 1-0 victory against visiting Colorado with their pitching carrying the day. Starter Michael Bolsinger improved to 2-0 with a three hit shutout over six frames while three relievers tossed an inning of scoreless baseball each. The offense managed only three hits but walked six times with Yasmani Grandal singling in Adrian Gonzalez with the only run of the game. Gonzalez also walked and Justin Turner was 1-2 with a pair of bases on balls. Carlos Frias takes the ball for his 4th consecutive start and first versus San Francisco. Frias did not get a decision last time out in a 5-4 loss to Miami where he gave up three runs on six hits over six innings.

The San Francisco Giants have found their stroke at the plate and the runs have been flowing. The Giants needed every run they could get in Sunday’s 9-8 win at Cincinnati with the starting pitching struggling. Christopher Heston lasted only two innings with five runs scored on seven hits and two bases on balls with six relievers needed. The bats pounded Reds Pitching for 16 hits and four walks with Brandon Belt going solo while Hunter Pence going deep and driving in two and scoring twice. Norichika Aoki knocked in three on three hits. Belt also scored three times with Brandon Crawford went 2-4 with an RBI and three runs. Veteran Tim Hudson draws the game one start against the Dodgers on Tuesday night. Hudson comes in off of a 4-3 defeat at Houston (ND) where he allowed three runs on six hits including a pair of homers in 5.1 frames.
The over is 41-17-4 in the Dodgers last 62 overall and is 41-17-4 in their last 62 on grass while Los Angeles are 12-5 in their last 17 overall. San Francisco are 10-3 in their last 13 home games and are 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win while the under is 7-2 in Hudson’s last 9 on grass. I think the way San Francisco is hitting makes them tough to go against right now…
