Game 39, 2014

Giants at Dodgers, 1:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA

Once upon a fairly-recent time if there was a big game between these two old rivals you’d expect the pitching matchup to be Lincecum for San Francisco and Kershaw for Los Angeles. Not anymore. Today’s game has Kershaw, but his opponent is 38-year old 209-game winner Tim Hudson, who’s been an ace for several teams in his career. Oddly, despite all his years with the Braves, he’s only started four times in Dodger Stadium and won only once. Overall he’s got a 6-4 record and a 3.49 ERA in 14 career starts against the Dodgers. Kershaw was 3-1 in five starts last year alone against the Giants.
