The Beat LA mission marches on. The San Francisco Giants took the first game on Monday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and now they have a chance to do something special. A win tonight not only guarantees a minimum of a series split, but ensures that the Giants will leave LA with sole possession of first place in the NL West.

Let’s get it.

Notes

Dodger debut: The Dodgers are electing to use an opener tonight, but then will hand things over to 23-year old right-hander Josiah Gray, who will be making his MLB debut. Gray is the top prospect in the Dodgers organization, and has a 2.87 ERA and 3.97 FIP, with 22 strikeouts to 2 walks in 15.2 innings this year in AAA.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.

Beat LA.
