MLB Total Pick
Peavy has been brilliant in recent starts allowing two or fewer runs in 7 consecutive games. His last start in Dodger Stadium came in 2013 when he pitched a complete game giving up three hits and one run. Dan Haren was lit up in Colorado the last time he took the mound, but was on a run of quality starts previously where he allowed 2 runs over 26 innings in four starts. The Giants bats have been stone cold exceeding 2 runs in one of their last eight games. The Dodgers will be making their first start at home since embarking on a 10 game road trip and may not be fully focused.
