The Dodgers meet the Giants for the third time this year. They were swept out of San Francisco the first meeting, then won two of three at Chavez Ravine. The team has to bear down and put up more runs as the Giant’s bats have been red hot the last few games.
Underlying the Dodger’s fast start to the season, is the fact that they have had an easy schedule thus far. The Giants are the only team they have played that has an over .500 record.
With Ryu likely out for the year, the Dodgers are whistling as they walk by the graveyard as they try to fill out the back of their starting rotation. Every game is important, so Mattingly had better rethink sitting four regulars at a time.
