Dodgers Vs. Giants Game Preview: Clayton Kershaw Looks To Finish Sweep Of San Francisco

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to return the favor to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Park. In their last visit to San Francisco, the Dodgers saw their three-game National League West lead evaporate with a Giants sweep, but with a win on Sunday the Dodgers can do the same, pull into a virtual tie in the division.

Clayton Kershaw takes the mound on Sunday, looking to rebound from Tuesday in St. Louis. He was cruising into the fifth inning but in seemingly the blink of an eye was out of the game in the sixth having given up eight runs for just the second time in his career.

Kershaw has given up two runs in each of his starts against the Giants this season, but both have been losses to Ryan Vogelsong, who is starting for the Giants on Sunday.

Hanley Ramirez looks to continue the impact he has had in his brief time as a Dodger. Ramirez has played four games with the blue crew so far but is hitting .375 (6-for-16) with a home run, a triple, and a double, with four runs scored and six runs batted in.

The Dodgers are 6-3 on their 10-game road trip, with only Sunday remaining in their third long trip of the season. They went 7-3 on a June 1-10 trip through Colorado, Philadelphia, and Seattle, but then went 1-8 from June 19-27 in Oakland, Anaheim, and San Francisco.
