The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for another win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Dodgers have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 166 hits and 114 RBI while Justin Turner and Corey Seager have combined for 270 hits and 150 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 13-4 with a 3.25 ERA and 207 strikeouts this season. Buehler is 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Giants have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 156 hits and 86 RBI while Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford have combined for 235 hits and 115 RBI. Johnny Cueto gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.57 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 7-8 with a 3.21 ERA and 103 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 road games, 66-30 in their last 96 vs. National League West and 61-29 in their last 90 during game 1 of a series. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games and 5-11 in their last 16 home games. The under is 5-2-2 in Dodgers last 9 road games. The under is 5-1-1 in Giants last 7 home games.
Buehler has allowed 19 hits and 12 runs in his last 23 innings, and he has a 3.66 ERA and .237 allowed batting average on the road. Cueto has allowed six hits and four runs in his 14 innings this season, which includes eight walks and 11 strikeouts. Cueto has been more than solid in a limited sample size, but he doesn't have much run support, and the Giants are going up against a hot Dodgers lineup that's still fighting for home field advantage over the New York Yankees in a possible World Series matchup. I have to lean toward the Dodgers here, but I don't love this price.
