MLB: San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The San Francisco Giants kick off an intense weekend of baseball against the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight at Oracle Park where the two teams will be battling it out for sole possession of first place in the division.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be Anthony DeSclafani who enters tonight’s game with a 3.38 ERA, 3.85 FIP with 127 strikeouts to 36 walks in 135 innings pitched. DeSclafani’s last start was in the Giants 9-0 loss to the Braves on Sunday. DeSclafani allowed six hits, three runs and struck out four in three innings.

On the mound for the Dodgers tonight will be Corey Knebel, who enters tonight’s game with a 3.52 ERA, 3.03 FIP with 88 strikeouts to 22 walks in 55.1 innings pitched. Knebel has started two games for the Dodgers this season as part of their bullpen game strategy, and he has primarily entered from the bullpen in later innings.
