The top two teams in the National League West clash for the final time at Dodger Stadium this season in Wednesday's finale of the three-game series between the Dodgers and Giants, with Los Angeles seeking a sweep and a 6 1/2-game division lead over San Francisco.
Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw just finished his second consecutive month with a sub-2.00 ERA, and his ERA on the season is down to 2.24. In his last outing, Kershaw tied a season high with 14 strikeouts in a 4-1 win over the Cubs. Since the beginning of July, Kershaw has a 96-to-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and he's 6-0 in that span.
