The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.

The San Francisco Giants look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Giants have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 58 hits and 32 RBI while Steven Duggar and Joe Panik have combined for 113 hits and 48 RBI. Drew Pomeranz gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 6.43 ERA and 55 strikeouts this season. Pomeranz is 1-5 with a 3.40 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 91 hits and 58 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 139 hits and 74 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Hill is 8-2 with a 2.33 ERA and 84 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The Giants are 10-27 in their last 37 during game 3 of a series, 4-14 in their last 18 Wednesday games and 16-40 in their last 56 vs. a team with a winning record. The Dodgers are 42-16 in their last 58 during game 3 of a series,  9-4 in Hills last 13 home starts and 13-4 in Hills last 17 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in Hills last 5 home starts vs. Giants and 5-1 in Hills last 6 starts vs. Giants. The over is 13-5 in Hills last 18 home starts. The under is 6-1 in Giants last 7 Wednesday games.

Pomeranz has allowed zero earned runs in his last 10 innings, but he's still a pitcher with an ERA over six on the season, and he has an 8.87 ERA and .316 allowed batting average on the road. Hill has allowed three or less earned runs in each of his nine starts and has a 2.61 ERA in 31 innings at home. Current Giants are hitting .366 against Hill in 93 at bats, but that's not enough for me to side with the Giants. Pomeranz has been god awful most of the season and has been even worse on the road. An explosive Dodgers offense that found its mojo last night should have a field day in this contest. 

Pick:
Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5
