I love the unbalanced schedules as they have created a stretch run that forces teams to beat teams in their division if they are going to take the crown.
These teams are battling for the NL West and no matter what happens this week they have two more series against each other including the final three of the season in San Francisco.
San Francisco Giants
As this is being written the Giants had frittered away their lead in the NL West.
Lots of time to go but in other years where the team has surged to the title I don’t remember sputters like this one (it could just be a recency bias).
They have battled injuries all season long and now it is Angel Pagan that is of concern.
The oft injured outfielder is battling a groin. When healthy he has been an important bat.
Johnny Cueto is having a strong first season in San Fran.
Unfortunately part of the team’s struggles are due to the fact that he has not been as dominant as he was in the first half of the season.
He is 2-1 against the Dodgers this season with both wins coming all the way back in April. His last start was really good but we weren’t able to say that for a month.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Nothing is guaranteed but when you spend as much as the Dodgers do you shouldn’t have to grind out wins the way they have done.
They definitely need more on offense and hopefully Adrian Gonzalez has finally woken up his bat, they need him.
They are in a dog fight and this series at home is an important one against San Francisco.
Winning by any means possible.
Rich Hill was acquired at the deadline but this will be his first start with the Dodgers due to a blister problem. In Oakland he was enjoying his best season in the Majors as the veteran lefty was dominating in a way he never had before.
There is a lot riding on this one, on the field and emotionally for L.A.
They don’t need him to be Clayton Kershaw, just to pass things along to a strong bullpen.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Cueto gives the Giants a great chance to win on the road. He has had success against LAD this season and his splits are solid home/road. The Giants have been making me nervous though.
Hill is a wild card in this one. His numbers were a little too good in Oakland and how he is plunked into a huge game off the hop. It is hard to know what to expect in his debut.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco ML
This could be a pitchers duel but I am not totally sold on Hill being in great form to hold up his end of the bargain. Stick with SF even though they have been shaking our confidence of late.
