The Dodgers are facing one of the best teams in baseball at a time when their playoff hopes are dwindling all around them. The San Francisco Giants won the NL West title on Saturday after defeating the San Diego Padres so any chance of getting into the playoffs as a division champion are now gone along with the anticipation of a Dodgers-Giants series at the end of the regular season determining the division champion.
The Dodgers have to focus on the Reds and the NL Wild Card. The Dodgers are three games back of the St. Louis Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot.
Righty Aaron Harang will pitch for the Dodgers against right-hander Homer Bailey for the Reds. Harang is 9-10 with a 3.80 ERA while Bailey is 12-9 with a 3.82 ERA this season.
