The LA Dodgers are hoping this weekend goes a lot better than the last time they faced the San Francisco Giants in a three game series. The teams played a month ago in San Francisco and the LA Dodgers failed to score a single run in all of the three games. The Dodgers struggles on the road have been well documented. They are a very good home team with a mark of 26-11 as they opened up this three game series. Los Angeles has shown power at the plate this year as they sit second in all of baseball in home runs.
As the Giants opened up this series on Friday night the club has been struggling loser of six of their past eight games. In a five game home stand that began last weekend against the Diamondbacks and Mariners, the Giants lost four of the five games including getting swept in all three home games against the Diamondbacks where they pushed across just two runs total. The bats cooled off a bit but the club still ranks in the top five of Major League Baseball for team batting on the season. Hot temperatures are forecasted this weekend at Dodgers Stadium and with a 5PM local time start we could see balls carry well on Sunday night.
