Kevin Gausman will make his 3rd career start against the Los Angeles Dodgers today. He is 0-1 with a 6.08 ERA in 3 previous games against Los Angels totaling 14 strikeouts. This season Gausman is 0-1 in 3 games for the Giants including 2 starts with 17 strikeouts and a 5.27 ERA. San Francisco is 0-2 when Giausman makes a start this year and has only eclipsed 4 innings once in his 3 starts this year but has walked just 2 batters.
The Dodgers will send out last year's ace Walker Buehler to the hill in today's series finale. He is seeking his first win of the year after 2 starts after allowing 5 earned runs, 4 being home runs, and has only 6 strikeouts. Buehler hasn't matched his numbers from last year just yet but there is potential. The Vanderbilt University alum was 14-4 in 30 starts last season which included 2 complete games, that led the league. He struck out 215 batters in 182 1/3 innings pitched with a 3.26 ERA. He faced the Giants 3 times last season and was 3-0 with a 2.60 ERA and overall is 4-0 in 6 career games vs his NL West rival.
First pitch is at 1:10 pm
