The Tim Hudson – Clayton Kershaw match up was everything we could ask for. So was the drama of the Giants and Dodgers game. Homers, great plays, a dramatic Hanley Ramirez homer, a Puig shot all set up the Giants 3 run 10th.
The Giants and Dodgers have played each other 10 times. The Giants have won 7 of them. They won’t meet again until July.
They play each other 9 more times. The Giants just needs to win 3 more games and they will have clinched the season series, which is all anyone could have asked for to start this season.
