2013 MLB Season:San Francisco Giants vs. LA DodgersApril 02, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, the LA Dodgers hosts the San Francisco Giants in the 2nd game of a three game series at Dodger Stadium. Game time is set at 10:10PM ET.

The Dodgers won the season opener behind the superb performance of 2011 NL Cy Young awardee Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw also managed to hit his first career homerun, struck out 7 batters and walked none.

For the 2nd match, the Dodgers will field in rookie and South Korean star Hjun-Jin Ryu on the mound. Los Angeles won the outbid all other MLB teams to get him out of the Korean league and straight to them.

The San Francisco Giants will send out Madison Bumgarner to counter Hjun-Jin Ryu. The Giants must not only pin their hopes to Bumgarner but their batters must bring uplift their offense. In the opening game, only Angel Pagan and Pablo Sandoval were able to register two hits each on the Giants' lineup.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the LA Dodgers as a 1.5-point favorite to beat the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.
