What a disappointing season for the Giants
It has been nothing but a disappointing season for the Giants and missing the playoffs is unacceptable for as much talent as the team had.

The offense is ranked 23rd and the pitching is ranked 13th. On the mound for the Giants will be Kyle Harrison who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 4.85.
Bobby Miller Needs to be Good
On the mound for the Dodgers is Bobby Miller and he sits with an 11-4 record and an ERA of 3.89. In his last start at Coors Field, he went seven innings giving up seven hits and two runs. The Dodgers are averaging 5.59 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.33 runs per game. The offense is ranked 2nd in the league while the pitching is ranked 10th. If Miller is good here, the Dodgers are going to find success.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Giants bats have been an issue heading into this game and it’s going to be no different in this game. Bobby Miller sits with an ERA of 3.89 and he’s going to lockdown in this game. The Dodgers bats are going to get going early against Harrison and that will be the difference as the Dodgers are going to get the job done with ease. Back the Dodgers on the run line.
