 Free MLB Picks LA Dodgers at San Francisco April 11th 2011
posted 6 years ago

THE STORY: With the weekend celebration of their World Series title complete, the San Francisco Giants turn their focus to the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers for the start of a three-game series on Monday. Both the Dodgers and Giants have struggled offensively to start the season, with both teams sitting near the bottom of the National League in runs scored.
 
TV: 10:15 p.m. ET, KCAL Los Angeles, CSN Bay Area
 
PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (1-1, 2.08 ERA) vs. Giants LH Madison Bumgarner (0-1, 9.00 ERA).
Kershaw struck out eight and allowed three runs on six hits in six innings last Tuesday in a MLB Picks loss to the Rockies. He is 2-1 lifetime against the Giants with a 1.23 ERA in seven games - six starts - against the Giants. Miguel Tejada is 5-for-15 (.333) against Kershaw, and Pat Burrell is 4-for-16 (.250) with a home run and six RBIs.
 
Bumgarner, who is 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA in two games against the Dodgers, allowed three earned runs over three innings against Los Angeles last Tuesday. He exited the MLB Odds game after throwing 41 of his 73 pitches in the third inning.
 
ABOUT THE DODGERS (5-4): Except for Matt Kemp, who looks like a top-5 outfielder again after a subpar 2010, the Dodgers’ offense is clearly struggling. Juan Uribe, James Loney, Rafael Furcal, Rod Barajas, Aaron Miles and Marcus Thames are each hitting under .223, and Loney hit into a double-play to end Sunday’s game. Backup catcher Hector Gimenez (knee) was placed on the disabled list prior to Sunday’s game, creating space for starter John Ely on the roster. Ely, who went 5 2/3 innings and gave up four runs on six hits and three walks, will likely be sent back to Triple-A Albuquerque in order to make room for Jon Garland (oblique), who is expected back on Friday. Tony Gwynn Jr. hit leadoff and went 1-for-3 on Sunday to improve his average to .350.
 
ABOUT THE GIANTS (4-5): Center fielder Andres Torres, who left Saturday’s MLB Odds game with an Achilles’ strain, will remain in a walking boot for a few more days before he’s re-evaluated on Wednesday. NL Rookie of the Year Buster Posey, who was honored in a pregame ceremony Sunday, received the day off. Posey is hitting 9-for-32 (.281) with a home run and five RBIs. After a strong spring training, Barry Zito hasn’t done much to win back the hometown fans. In two starts covering 11 1/3 innings, Zito has a 5.56 ERA with seven walks. Rookie first baseman Brandon Belt, who sat in favor of Aubrey Huff on Saturday, is off to a 5-for-31 (.161) start after going 0-for-3 on Sunday. Free Sports Picks Bet on San Francisco.
 
FINAL PITCH: Kershaw has not allowed a run over his last 17 innings against San Francisco, including seven scoreless on Opening Day. Don't forget to join us this season for out NFL Picks.
