Clayton Kershaw (5-3, 2.75) vs. Matt Cain, (3-2, 3.22).
The second-place Giants drop by Dodger Stadium for a quick two-game jaunt before interleague play starts this weekend. The Dodgers will miss Tim Lincecum, who actually struggled in his last start, against the Rockies. They do get Matt Cain, who, having overcome his inability to beat the Dodgers last year, has beat them three times since. But the Dodgers counter with last night's bobbleboy Kershaw, who, if he can get any kind of run support (how about another dinger, Matt Kemp? Andre?), can retake the team lead in wins at six. Not that wins mean anything, except to agents trying to strike long-term deals for their pitcher clients.
