Game Preview

The Giants and the Dodgers have one of the biggest, oldest rivalries in MLB, and they will write another chapter with a three-game series this weekend at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers were off Thursday, while the Giants suffered a 6-4 loss against the Colorado Rockies, and the Dodgers also boast a better record compared to San Francisco's – 9-4 against 6-8. The pitching matchup should also favor the Dodgers, as they will send Julio Urias against Jeff Samardzija. Urias has gotten to a strong start this season, but he tends to pitch at his best against San Francisco. He owns a 1.16 ERA in seven career starts against the Giants.
