TOGETHER, WE MUST KEEP IT ROLLING
TERRIBLE PHONE SERVICE PARK
GAME 1 (AKA RYU VS CAIN)
Friday, 7/5. 10:15 PM
Ryu was supposed to be the "other" free-agent pitcher the Dodgers acquired over the winter, but Ryu has been more effective than Zack Greinke. He is winless over his last five starts.vs.
Cain retired the final 20 batters he faced, pitching eight strong innings and allowing one run and a walk. He was back in All-Star form, striking out five but earning a no-decision in the Giants' 2-1 loss to the Rockies.GAME 2 (AKA CY. FIFE VS. MADBUM)
Saturday 7/6. 7:15 PM
If the Dodgers really are linked to acquiring Miami starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco, it must not be to replace Fife, who has three straight quality starts, including a win over the Giants.
Bumgarner solidified his place as the Giants' most reliable starter, allowing only one run in seven innings for his eighth win Sunday vs. the Rockies. He walked three and struck out five, allowing only four hits, one of them a solo homer.GAME 3 (AKA KERSHAW VS. ANOTHER BEARD GUY)
Sunday, 7/7. 4:05 PM
Kershaw is merely coming off a four-hit shutout at Coors Field, which dropped his ERA below 2.00. He's already 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA against the Giants this year and 10-4, 1.33 in his career.vs.
Gaudin sustained a bruised throwing elbow when he was struck by a comebacker hit by Miami's Derek Dietrich on June 20. To that point, Gaudin, who began the year in the bullpen, had the durability to bear a regular starter's triple-digit pitch limit.
