The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Giants have scored 30 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Giants have won nine straight games when scoring more than three runs. Angel Pagan leads San Francisco with 46 hits and 10 RBI while Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford have combined for 43 RBI. The San Francisco Giants have split their last six games on their home field. Tim Hudson takes the hill, and he’s 1-3 with a 4.57 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. Hudson is 6-6 with a 4.03 ERA and 74 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 52-22 in their last 74 vs. National League West. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 1-4 in Hudsons last 5 home starts.
Hudson is due for a breakout performance, and the Giants bats have woken up in a monster way. I like the Giants to remain hot and pickup yet another victory.
