Hyun-Jin Ryu (11-5, 3.39) vs. Jake Peavy (1-9, 4.72).
Jake Peavy is 14-2 lifetime against the Dodgers, BUT he's only faced them three times in the past six years, AND his record in those three games is 1-2 (he lost twice in 2009, his last year with the Padres; the one win came last year with the Red Sox). As you can see from his record this year, at age 33 he's losing the form that made him a Cy Young winner in 2007.
BUT he's an ex-Padres wearing a Giants uniform starting a game that will decide which team will keep/take first place in the NL West, so...there's no telling.
All Puig has done in his two games in center field is go 5 for 10 with two RBI and three runs, so it's safe to say he'll be starting there again today. "I like 5 runs and 10 hits. Whatever lineup they can throw out there to do that is great," Kershaw said after last night's win, so don't look for Donnie to try anything radical with the lineup.
Tonight's game is on ESPN, so the city of Los Angeles can finally join the rest of the nation in watching the Dodgers. Let's show them what a first-place team looks like.
