What Lynn is Going to Show Up?

The Dodgers are averaging 5.61 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.37 runs per game. The offense is ranked 2nd while the pitching is ranked 11th.
Must Win for the Giants
The Giants have an uphill climb to make the playoffs and that means at this point of the season basically every game is a must win. The Giants offense hasn’t been good enough this season, but in this game they are going to need to try to get Lynn early and often. The Giants are averaging 4.29 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.46 runs per game. The offense is ranked 22nd while the pitching is ranked 15th.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Giants offense hasn’t lived up to the expectations and Lynn has been better the last couple of games. San Francisco’s bats are going to be ice cold here, and that is going to be the difference. The Dodgers are going to score at least five runs, and that will be enough for them to get the job done. Back the Dodgers -1.5.
