Here it is – the first game of the first of three three-game series over the next five weeks against the San Francisco Giants. These nine games will go a long ways to determining the winning team of the National League West Division. So it seems appropriate that both teams are throwing their best available starting pitcher in game one. For the Giants, that’s Madison Bumgarner. For the Dodgers, it’s Kenta Maeda. I know some of us have said that Julio Urias is the best, but Maeda has more experience pitching at the top level.
May the Dodgers continue to hit the ball like they did against the Reds in their most recent two games.
