Dodgers Can Reach .500 With Win Over Giants

The Dodgers are 19-8 in their last 27 games.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their fourth straight win on Saturday night, facing the San Francisco Giants in the second game of a three-game series at AT&T Park in San Francisco. With a win on Saturday, the Dodgers would be at .500 for the first time since May 2, when they were 15-15. The Dodgers are 19-8 in their last 27 games.

Dana Eveland gets the start for the Dodgers, his second start of the season. After allowing one run in eight innings in a win in Pittsburgh on September 1, Eveland was scheduled to pitch Wednesday in Washington D.C. against the Nationals, but that game got rained out. He was then scheduled to pitch Thursday in the second game of the doubleheader Thursday, but that got rained out too.

Ryan Vogelsong was picked up off the scrap heap by the Giants in the offseason, and was rewarded for his efforts with the Willie Mac Award, given annually to the Giant who embodies the competitiveness and spirit of Hall of Famer Willie McCovey. Vogelsong was pursued by the Dodgers this winter, but turned them down and called the Giants instead. "I couldn't see myself being a Dodger," Vogelsong said.

Saturday night's 6:05 p.m. PDT game will be televised on Prime Ticket. For more news and information on the Dodgers, be sure to read True Blue LA.
