  1. The key to them beating out the Giants is hitting in the clutch and with men on base. If they keep up with the very low RISP numbers, they will not make it.

  2. Giants have been winning late in games recently w/ clutch hitting, but w/ the emergence of the Dodgers’ BP, I feel they can shut them down if Doc plays it well. The Giants SP have been leaking oil recently and the acquisition of Trea and Mookie coming back, the offense needs to get going early and stay in the lead to win. The Giants BP have been shaky @ times and can be beat w/ the lineup the Dodgers can put out if everybody is healthy. The defense also need to be solid w/ no mistakes to beat a sound disciplined Giants team. It’s not going to be easy, but a good rivalry battle.

    • Absolutely. The Dodgers have a good chance to overtake the Giants during the final stretch of this regular season. This will, however, require early scoring by our offense and the continued overall success of our bullpen. The Giants have played hard ALL season and may be starting to run out of steam (although Giants still manage a lot of clutch hitting in their late innings which is something we definitely need to do.) Go Dodgers!

  3. We don’t know if the Dodgers can catch the Giants unless they actually catch the Giants. Long winning streaks certainly help, however they don’t guarantee much movement (if any) in the standings. The vice grip will be tightened on one of the teams after their head to head matchup in early September!
