Los Angeles is 7-2 in their last nine Friday games, 61-29 against the NL West, and 4-0 in Bolsinger’s last four home starts. San Francisco is 0-5 against the NL West, 6-1 in their last seven Friday games, and 5-2 in Heston’s last seven starts. San Francisco is 1-4 in their last five games in Los Angeles.
The Giants have had the Dodgers number but not so much in LA but I see them getting the win in this one.
