The San Francisco Giants fought hard on Monday but they could get the winning run across as they lost to the Dodgers. Buster Posey had four hits and Brandon Belt and Matt Duffy each had two hits as the Giants scored four runs on 13 hits. Starting pitcher Jake Peavy allowed six hits and four runs while striking out four over 5.2 innings to not get a decision as Mie Broadway took the loss. For Tuesday’s game the Giants start Madison Bumgarner who has allowed 150 hits and 58 earned runs while striking out 192 over 175.2 innings for a 16-6 record and a 2.97 ERA.
Los Angeles is 6-1 in their last seven games, 56-24in their last 80 home games, and 35-10 in Greinke’s last 45 home starts. San Francisco is 7-2 against the NL West, 28-9 in game two of a series, and 26-9 in Bumgarner’s last 35 road starts. San Francisco is 5-2 in the last seven meetings of these two.
The Dodgers got the best of it on Monday but I look for the Giants to get the better of it here as Greinke just doesn’t get much support.
