The San Francisco Giants have lost nine of their last 10 games when scoring three or less runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 139 hits and 78 RBI while Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria have combined for 207 hits and 115 RBI. Dereck Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 5-8 with a 5.15 ERA and 58 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 0-0 with a 17.47 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won six of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 152 hits and 105 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 249 hits and 154 RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 2.55 ERA and 70 strikeouts this season. Urias is 0-2 with a 1.47 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 18-38 in their last 56 during game 3 of a series, 7-3 in their last 10 Sunday games and 5-16 in Rodriguez's last 21 starts. The Dodgers are 50-15 in their last 65 home games, 40-16 in their last 56 Sunday games and 4-0 in Urias' last 4 starts. The Giants are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 7-2-1 in Dodgers last 10 overall. The under is 6-0 in Rodriguez's last 6 starts with 4 days of rest.
Rodriguez has allowed 30 hits and 16 earned runs in his last 26 innings, and he has a 4.47 ERA and .249 allowed batting average on the road. Urias has allowed 10 hits and three earned runs in his last 10.1 innings, and he has a 3.50 ERA and .243 allowed batting average at home. Rodriguez isn't a pitcher anybody should be looking to back given his horrible form, but Urias doesn't go deep into games, so you're putting your trust into a shaky Dodgers bullpen. I'm not getting involved with these prices, so I'll take my chances with the over again in this series. Runs should pop up after last nights pitching showdown.
