The Dodgers and Giants are getting set for the rubber match of their three-game series. The Dodgers took the first game in dominant 9-1 fashion, while the Giants came back to shutout the Dodgers in game two. For the third and final game of the series, the Dodgers are sending Clayton Kershaw to the mound to face off against Alex Cobb of the Giants.
Here’s the lineup the Dodgers are sending out to face Cobb.
Chris Taylor is out of the lineup with Miguel Rojas back in at shortstop. James Outman and David Peralta are in the outfield, as the righty Cobb is on the mound. And, Will Smith is remaining in the lineup, even with Kershaw on the hill.
One big note is J.D. Martinez’s career numbers against Cobb. The Dodgers DH has seen Cobb very well in his career, going 12-for-25 with one home run, five doubles and two RBIs. He has an impressive slashline of .480/.500/.800 against Cobb in his career.
Kershaw is making his 55th career start and 57th appearance against the Giants. In his 56 previous appearances, he’s 24-15 with an impressive 2.01 ERA and 388 strikeouts in 377 innings.
The Dodgers would love to get another Kershaw gem to give them the series win heading into the much-needed day off.
