Take Los Angeles.
This is my DIAMOND PLAY.
Game 909.
6:45 pm pst.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of the hottest teams in baseball, winning 12 of the last 16 contests. They are perched atop the NL West at 20-12, two games ahead of both the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres. They are doing it on both sides of the field. The offense ranks 5th in scoring at 5.44 RPG, 9th in Team BA at .259, and 3rd in HR's with 52 round-trippers. The pitching has been outstanding, ranking 10th in Team ERA at 3.93 and 5th in strikeouts with 279 K's. San Francisco was not touted to be a playoff team. But dropping eight of their last 12 to sink to last place in the division at 12-18 is even worse than we could have imagined. Their pitching has been good (3.81 Team ERA). It is their offense (or lack thereof) that has been downright deplorable, ranking 29th in scoring (3.20 RPG), 29th in Team BA (.214), 27th in HR's (24), and 25th in SB's (9). Things are going to go from bad to worse as they face Dodgers pitcher, Hyun-Jin Ryu here. The RH is in top-form, with a 3-1, 2.96 record on the season, fanning 33 and walking just two in 27.1 IP. The Giants send Madison Bumgarner to the hill. The LH is a disappointing, 1-4, with an ERA of 4.30 on the year. Mad-Bum has not had a successful campaign since 2016. Los Angeles is 7-2 the last nine meetings in this series,10-1 in Ryu's last 11 starts vs. NL West opponents, and 42-18 the last 60 games played vs. NL West foes. San Francisco is 1-5 the last six games played at home, 1-7 in Bumgarner's last eight starts, and 17-39 the last 56 games played overall. Take the Dodgers. Thank you.
