The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants face off in Game 4 of their NLDS series at Dodger Stadium. The Giants currently sit with a 2-1 series lead, and if the Giants win this game, they will advance to the NLCS. 

In the first game of this series, it was the Giants that came away with the 4-0 victory. In the second game, the Dodgers offense finally broke out scoring nine runs, and that led to the seven-run victory. Cody Bellinger and AJ Pollack were the top players in that game for the Dodgers finishing with two RBI’s. 

On Monday night it was a pitchers duel with the Giants coming away with the 1-0 victory. The Dodgers actually outhit the Giants 5-3, but they couldn’t string any hits together. Evan Longoria was the difference maker hitting a home run in the top of the 5th inning. In the bottom of the 7th, Brandon Crawford made a leaping catch at shortstop that saved the game. Albert Pujols was the top player for the Giants

Tony Gonsolin will be pitching at some point in this game for the Dodgers, it’s just unclear at this point when that will happen. In 55.2 innings pitched so far this season, Gonslin has given up 20 runs. His last appearance came all the way back on September against the San Diego Padres and he went 4.2 innings giving up four hits and three runs. 

Getting the start for the Giants will be Anthony DeSclafani and on the season he sits with a 13-7 record and an ERA of 3.17. in his last start against the Padres he went five innings giving up four hits and zero runs. 

The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings. The Giants are 4-1 in the last five meetings in Los Angeles. 

I don’t trust Tony Gonsolin right now, and even if the Giants don’t score a whole lot of runs, they have proven with their pitching they can win low-scoring games. I expect the Dodgers bats are going to be ice cold, much like they were on Monday, and their season will end in this game. Back the Giants on the money line.
