It’s early in the season, but tonight’s starters have already faced their opponent twice in 2014. Dodgers’ starter Paul Maholm was hot and cold getting the QS when pitching in San Francisco and being pulled after 4.1 innings at home after allowing 5 runs. Home has been an issue for Maholm with a 5.71 ERA in 3 starts. Giants’ starter Madison Bumgarner pitched well in the first matchup in LA with a QS where he struck out 10 in 6.1 innings. What may be troubling is his last outing when he had a pitch count issue lasting only 4.1 innings, striking out 6 but walking 3 and allowing 2 runs. That outing broke off a string of 6 quality starts for Bumgarner and patience at the plate may be the strategy again tonight. Umpire Will Little will be behind home plate with his 5-2 to the over record this season.
Take Over 7 -105.
