The Giants offense needs to find the balance between home runs, and hits. Filled, top to bottom with great hitters, no pitcher will want to face this extremely dangerous lineup. Watch for Belt, Morse and Hicks to continue their slugging. Crawford is also hitting lefties like no other player in the big leagues right now, interesting prospect given that Kershaw pitches for the Dodgers in game four.

As usual, the Dodgers lineup looks lethal. Yasiel Puig should return to the lineup again after missing a few games. Surprisingly, second baseman, Gordon, who wasn’t even meant to be in the starting lineup, has now become the table setter at the top of the Dodgers lineup. Gordon on the base paths against Posey behind the plate could be a key battle.
