Giants at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, CSBA
The most-anticipated series of the season until the next one between these two teams begins tonight. It starts with the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner (12-7, 2.25 ERA) and his home-run bat facing the Dodgers’ Kenta Maeda (12-7, 3.29 ERA), whose 5-43 (.136) average and .346 OPS aren’t going to scare anyone. Bumgarner is 0-1 with a 4.09 ERA in two starts vs. the Dodgers this season, while Maeda is 1-0 with a .047 ERA in one start against the Giants, giving up one earned run over seven innings back in April.
Personnel news of a sort: Rob Segedin had to be places in a hurry after getting off the plane from Cincinnati:

Presumably there’s a replacement for Segedin waiting in the wings if his wife goes into labor mid-game.
