After dropping a tough three games to the Padres, the San Francisco Giants hope to regroup as they head north a couple of hours to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers.

They will play a three-game set, looking to turn the page from the mistake-laden, offensive-lacking weekend. The San Francisco Giants will throw three straight lefties at the Dodgers, while they have two lefties and a righty in response. It’s not like it really matters though, as the Giants have had a tough time getting anything going against any dexterity right now.

Unlike the Giants, the Dodgers have been an offensive machine, scoring 42 runs in their first four games. The Diamondbacks don’t have the pitching quite like the Giants are touting right now, but still, the Dodgers can be a big problem for them.

Newly acquired A.J. Pollock, whom the Giants are very familiar with, is off to a hot start with a home run and six RBI over the first four games. Cody Bellinger has four home runs and eight RBI, and Joc Pederson has three home runs and six RBI to start off the season. The Dodgers are tough outs right now out of the gate.
