Josh Beckett (1-1, 2.92) vs. Tim Lincecum (8-14, 5.21)
So...where were we?
June 25-27: Giants sweep Dodgers.
July 27-29: Dodgers sweep Giants.
August 20-22: Giants sweep Dodgers.
If the pattern holds, we're due to go in and sweep this weekend. I'm all for that, as long as the pattern gets broken October 1-3.
As badly as we all want a sweep, though, the smart thing to do is stick to the cliche of "one game at a time." It's not a must-win, but yeah, it totally is.
To make things more depressing, this is the only game of the series that will be blessed with Vin's golden commentary, as the weekend games are national broadcasts. Hey Dodgers, how about you get him the win you owe him from Bobblehead Night?
