San Francisco Giants vs Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have dominated their opponents this season, winning 92 of 133 games. The Dodgers are currently the top team in the NL West with a 92-41 season record. They have won six of their last ten games. The Dodgers are the home team for this game and are the favorite as they have a 47-17 record when playing at home.

Andrew Heaney will make his 11th start on the mound for the Dodgers in Sunday's game. Heaney is 2-1 on the season and has pitched 46.2 innings. Heaney has a 2.12 ERA and 70 strikeouts. Heaney's last start lasted 5 innings and he allowed 2 runs and 7 hits.

Will Smith homered for the second time, and Trayce Thompson added a pinch-hit home run as the Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 9-4 on Sunday. The Dodgers are averaging 5.35 runs per game while allowing 3.16 runs per game.

The Dodgers and Giants last met in August, with the Dodgers completing a four-game sweep with home runs coming from Mookie Betts and Trea Turner during those four games. The Dodgers have won eight consecutive games against the Giants.

Unfortunately, the Dodgers have been beset by injuries. Blake Treinen, the Dodgers' late-inning ace last season, was placed on the injured list in April, missing significant time this season. In addition, the Dodgers placed David Price on the 15-day injured list with left wrist inflammation and recalled Ryan Pepiot from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill his spot on the roster.

San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants are third in the NL West. In their last ten games, the Giants have won four of them. San Francisco is 27-36 on the road. Wilmer Flores leads the way for San Francisco with 104 hits. Adding to the Giants' strong batting order, Joc Pederson has 21 home runs and 61 RBIs this season.

The Giants are averaging 4.47 runs per game while allowing 4.41 runs per game. Their offense is ranked 12th in the league, while the pitching staff is ranked 18th.

Carlos Rodón recently led the Giants to a 5-3 walk-off win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Oracle Park. After striking out 10 batters in six scoreless innings, the 29-year-old left-hander has earned his first 200-strikeout season.

Recently, San Francisco placed left-hander Alex Wood on the 15-day injured list due to a left shoulder impingement. Joey Bart, the team's catcher, suffered a concussion earlier this week. Anthony DeSclafani, a right-handed pitcher, has been out since April with a right ankle injury.
