The Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants face off on Monday at Dodger Stadium for game one of their MLB series of NL West teams.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have a narrow lead in the National League West as they start the weeks’ schedule at home. The Dodgers are 6-4 in their last 10 games, 8-1 at home, and they have outscored their opponents by 15 runs. As a team the Dodgers are hitting .275 with Adrian Gonzalez hitting .380, Howie Kendrick hitting .303, and Joc Pederson hitting .275. As a team the Dodgers pitching staff has an ERA of 3.54 with the starters at 4.01 and the bullpen at 2.68. For game one against the Giants the Dodgers start Brett Anderson who has allowed 21 hits and nine runs while striking out eight over 15 innings for a 1-1 record and a 5.40 ERA.

The San Francisco Giants are in last place in the NL West and while they got off to a bad start to the season they still have the leaders well within their sites. The Giants are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 4-5 on the road, and they are coming off of a day of rest after their game at Colorado was postponed. As a team the Giants are hitting .250 with Angel Pagan hitting .355, Joe Panik is hitting .303, and Nori Aoki is hitting .303. The Giants pitching staff has an ERA of 3.70 with the starters at 4.22 and the bullpen at 2.81. For game one against the Dodgers the Giants start Tim Lincecum who has allowed 15 hits and 5 runs while striking out 14 over 18.0 innings of work for a 1-1 record and a 2.00 ERA.
Los Angeles is 9-3 in their last 12 games, 43-18 against the NL West, and 8-2 against a right-handed starter. San Francisco is 4-1 against the NL West, 1-4 in their last five road games, and 0-5 in Lincecum’s last five road starts. San Francisco is 9-4 in their last 13 games in Los Angeles.
In this rivalry the records can be thrown out and I like Lincecum to deliver here for the Giants as he has owned the Dodgers.
