Monday evening on the MLB diamond and a pair of teams from the National League West will square off as the San Francisco Giants duke it out with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. This is game one of a four-game series between these division rivals. The Dodgers lead the season series 5-4.

Pitching Matchup: Tyler Beede (0-2, 8.06 ERA) will get the nod for the Giants while getting the nod for the Dodgers will be Kenta Maeda (7-3, 3.89 ERA).

Win Streak Ends At Four

The San Francisco Giants have been in the basement of the National League West for much of the year and they have actually played better on the road than at home, but they come into this series off a very nice homestand. The Giants went 5-3 on the homestand, which included taking two of three from the Central Division-leading Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend. The Giants did have a four-game win streak going, before losing to the Brewers in the finale on Sunday by a score of 5-3. The win streak was their longest of the year and now they have to try and get back on track against the Best team in the National League. Good luck there. The Giants are currently 16.5 games out of first n their division.

The offense for the Giants has been a bit better of late as they have scored 26 runs in their last five games, compared to putting up just seven runs in their previous five games. The Giants have averaged 4.55 rpg on the road, compared to 3.123 rpg at home, but we also note that they have averaged just 2.67 rpg against the Dodgers this year. The Giants had seven hits in tehir loss to the Brewers, with no one having more than one hit, while Brandon Belt, Kevin Pilar, and Jeff Samardzija all had RBIs. Samardzija also took the loss after allowing four ERs on nine hits and two walks while striking out five in 5.0 innings of work. He is now 3-6 with a 3.96 ERA on the year. The Giants are currently 27th in the league in run differential at -82.

The Giants will trot out Tyler Beede in this one and he has gone 0-2 with an 8.06 ERA in six games (four starts) on the year, including 0-2 with an 8.80 ERA in four games (three starts) on the road. Beede has gone 0-1 with an 8.50 ERA in his four starts so far this year. The 26-year-old righty is still looking for his first career win as he has gone 0-3 with an 8.10 ERA in eight games (six starts) overall. He is 09-2 with an 8.42 ERA in his six career starts and he has never faced the Dodgers.

The Giants have been poor on offense so far as they come in ranked 28th in the league in scoring, putting up 3.86 rpg, while also ranking 29th in hitting at .227 and 28th in homers with 63. On the mound, they have been below average as they rank 16th in the league in ERA at 4.54, while also ranking 15th in WHIP at 1.34 and 22nd in K’s with 590. Their pen ranks 5th in ERA at 3.75.
