Giants at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: ESPN, SPNLA, CSBA
Rich Hill is scheduled to make his first start for the Dodgers since his acquisition at the trade deadline three weeks ago. He’s had blister troubles, and if you wonder how those are treated in the big leagues, read on. Mike Petriello has some excellent analysis of Hill’s “stuff.”
Hill is 9-3 with a 2.25 ERA, all with Oakland before the trade. His opponent will be Johnny Cueto, who’s 14-3 with a 2.90 ERA.
Winning Game One of this series means even if the Giants come back and win the next two games the Dodgers are still in first place, albeit tied. I like that better than tied now after a loss.
Happy news from and for the Segedin family.
Lineup when available.
