LA Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants Prediction 

The Dodgers come into this series playing very well and their pitching staff has been one of the best in baseball this year. LA is 26-15 on the road, while San Francisco is 23-18 at home this season. The Giants have had major issues with their pitching so far this year and they are 25th in the MLB in team ERA. Logan Webb hasn’t been great in recent outings and he faces a very tough LA lineup here. On the other side, Landon Knack hasn’t pitched very much for the Dodgers, but he has been very good in limited work. My LA Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants prediction is for the Dodgers to win.
