The San Francisco Giants have the worst record in the National League, with just 40 wins on the season. Those marks are being challenged by the 2017 team, so meeting up with the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers, their rival from birth, is a problem for the Giants.

The Giants' Hunter Pence hits a solo home run as Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal watches during the fourth inning on Saturday. "In this park, against that club, really nice job".

Before any nay sayers might wade in with the idea that the Dodgers are in a weak division and are able to play those subpar teams more often than teams in the Central or Eastern divisions - not true. "Just couldn't do much offensively".

"It was a curveball, but they had been throwing those pretty much all game after the first AB so I was ready for it, I guess", Seager said.

Bumgarner, 101-71 in his career, pitched well in his four April starts before the injury, posting a 3.00 ERA, but the Giants lost all four games. Giants fans can point to the three World Series championships in the 2010s and the Dodgers' absence from the Series since they last won it in 1988. Any lead, any time.

The event helped raise money for the Dream Center, which helps disadvantaged families in Los Angeles, and Cure International Hospital in the Dominican Republic which provides medical services for children with physical disabilities.

TORONTO - A sacrifice fly by Cliff Pennington capped a three-run rally in the ninth inning as Los Angeles came back to defeat Toronto.

The Giants could comfort themselves with the knowledge that they had the pitching to win, they have played the Dodgers tough this season - they are 6-6 against them - and they even threatened in the ninth against Kenley Jansen.

ST. LOUIS - Hall of Fame outfielder Lou Brock said he is free of cancer more than three months after the 78-year-old St. Louis Cardinals great announced he had been diagnosed with a type of blood cancer.

Barnes is getting a spot start behind the plate as the Dodgers give Yasmani Grandal a rest versus southpaw Matt Moore and the Giants. And on Saturday, the bullpen threw 3.1 innings of two-hit ball in relief of Hill. The Giants have dropped five of their last eight and could be without Brandon Belt for the next few days as the first baseman was scratched from Friday's lineup with a sore right wrist. First pitch is scheduled for 5:05PM PST.

We should all strive to be as patient as Moncrief. Los Angeles is on another six-game winning streak after taking Game 1 of its series with the Giants. He will face a longtime friend and former colleague in Giants corner infielder Jae-gyun Hwang, who is in his first season with San Francisco after 10 years in the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO). Bruce Bochy massaged the decision by saying they want to keep Bumgarner on his regular process. "But still, he gets some movement on the ball, he locates it well and that usually works up here. But right now, we're in a good place". "He worked with it very well". In this Sunday's night game, the Giants are facing off against the Dodgers, with the Dodgers taking the first two games of this series - let's take a look at tonight's game.

By looking at the standings, it's hard to argue.
