KEY GAME INFORMATION
SAN FRANCISCO: HITTING: The Giants scored the second-fewest runs in the majors. But the additions of OF MELKY CABRERA (.305 BA, 18 HR, 87 RBI, 102 runs) and OF ANGEL PAGAN (32 SB) at the top of the order will certainly help. C BUSTER POSEY's surgically repaired ankle should be fully healed for the start of the season, and the 25-year-old's .368 OBP is certainly needed. 3B PABLO SANDOVAL was the team's best hitter in 2011 (.315 BA, 23 HR, 70 RBI) and was the only legitimate power source. The right side of the infield consists of veteran players past their prime. 1B AUBREY HUFF had his worst season, hitting .246 with 12 HR, but the 35-year-old will continue to bat in the middle of the lineup. 2B FREDDY SANCHEZ, 34, missed 50+ games for the third straight year as he suffered a torn labrum. SS BRANDON CRAWFORD has a slick glove but he's not close to being a legitimate major-league hitter (.204 career BA). OF BRANDON BELT, 23, has future star potential, but will be in a reserve role. OF NATE SCHIERHOLTZ (.756 OPS) provides a reliable bat in right field.
STARTING PITCHING: San Francisco ranked second in the majors in ERA (3.28), strikeouts (5.4 per game) and Opp. BA (.237). TIM LINCECUM was the ace once again with a 2.74 ERA and 220 strikeouts, but carried a sub-.500 record (13-14). Including playoffs, Lincecum has thrown an average of 230 innings per season since 2008. MATT CAIN also had a phenomenal year, carting a 2.88 ERA, team-best 1.08 WHIP and fanning 179 batters. He allowed only nine home runs in 221.2 innings of work. 22-year-old lefty MADISON BUMGARNER had a solid first full season, finishing with a 3.21 ERA, and a 4.2 K-to-BB ratio (191 strikeouts, 46 walks). RYAN VOGELSONG was an unbelievable story, returning to the majors for the first time since 2006 and going 13-7 with a 2.71 ERA. Although he's 34, his arm has plenty of innings left. BARRY ZITO will likely earn the final spot in the rotation as prospect ERIC SURKAMP gets more seasoning in Triple-A. Zito posted a career-worst 5.87 ERA while Surkamp carted a 1.84 WHIP in six starts.
RELIEF PITCHING: The success of the San Francisco bullpen hinges on BRIAN WILSON, who had a down year (1.47 WHIP, 54 K, 31 BB) because of elbow problems. Surgery was not required for his ailment, so expect a nice bounce-back season from this elite closer. If Wilson gets injured again, SERGIO ROMO could get called upon in the late innings. But even if he doesn't save a game, he still has plenty of value as a set-up man, notching a gaudy 13.1 strikeout rate and 0.71 WHIP last year. In 48 innings, he struck out 70 batters and only walked five. JEREMY AFFELDT is the top lefty in the Giants pen. He notched a strong 2.63 ERA and also tallied a career-best 1.15 WHIP last year.
LA DODGERS: HITTING: The Dodgers were ravaged with injuries in 2010 and finished in the bottom third in the majors in runs (4.00 per game), homers (117) and OPS (.697). None of these poor numbers were the fault of OF MATT KEMP, who finished second in MVP voting with a .324 BA, 39 HR, 126 RBI and 40 steals. He says he wants a 50-50 season in 2012. 1B JAMES LONEY had the second-most homers (12) of any returning player, and batted .357 with a .608 SLG after August 1. If speedy SS DEE GORDON learns to be more patient at the plate (7 BB in 224 AB), he could score 90 runs from the top of the order. OF ANDRE ETHIER made headlines with a 30-game hit streak, but was once again dominated by lefties (.563 OPS). The team is counting on two veterans to drive in runs. 3B JUAN URIBE has been a walking infirmary lately, but still has 15-HR power, and OF JUAN RIVERA had 46 RBI in 219 AB after coming to the Dodgers. Two guys named Ellis, 2B MARK ELLIS and C A.J. ELLIS, will bat at the bottom of the order.
STARTING PITCHING: The Dodgers remain one of the better rotations in baseball, placing third in the majors in ERA (3.41) and fourth in opponents' BA (.242). The biggest reason for the success was the NL Cy Young and Triple Crown-winning performance of CLAYTON KERSHAW, who tied for the NL lead in wins (21) and topped all NL pitchers in ERA (2.28) and strikeouts (248). Fellow southpaw TED LILLY had a down year overall (12-14, 3.97 ERA), but had a fantastic final two months of the season (2.09 ERA, 0.93 WHIP). CHAD BILLINGSLEY notched his fifth straight season of double-digit wins, despite sporting a mediocre 4.21 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. AARON HARANG signed a two-year, $12M deal to join the Dodgers rotation. He won 14 games for the lowly Padres last year and finished with a career-best 3.64 ERA. CHRIS CAPUANO left the Mets for richer pastures (2-yr, $10M) of Los Angeles. Although he pitched well at spacious Citi Field (3.82 ERA, 1.21 WHIP), he was terrible on the road (5.42 ERA, 1.51 WHIP).
RELIEF PITCHING: Jonathan Broxton is gone, ending any kind of closer controversy the Dodgers may have been trying to avoid. JAVY GUERRA is the closer, and for good reason. He converted 21-of-23 save chances while posting a 2.31 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and allowing just two homers in 46.2 innings. If Guerra falters, manager Don Mattingly can afford to have a short leash with KENLEY JANSEN as his set-up man. Jansen led the majors with an insane 16.1 K-per-9 ratio and limited opponents to a .159 BA and .228 slugging percentage. At age 24, his upside is extremely high. MATT GUERRIER is a usually reliable reliever, but he is coming off a subpar 2011 campaign (4.07 ERA, 1.27 WHIP).

*Giants-Dodgers Preview* ========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

San Francisco (38-39) at Los Angeles (34-42), 10:10 p.m. EDT

The Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw and San Francisco Giants' Tim Lincecum have been at their best in recent matchups against each other's teams.

Kershaw, though, has earned victories in the past four meetings between NL Cy Young Award winners and will try to earn another while helping the Dodgers extend their season-high win streak to five games Wednesday night.

Kershaw (5-5, 2.06 ERA) hasn't won since May 20 despite allowing three runs or fewer in four of his last five starts.

His latest outing wasn't one of those. He gave up four runs over six innings in a 5-2 defeat in San Diego on Friday, and the Dodgers' poor run support for him continued.

Los Angeles (34-42) gave him one run in that game and has provided him with an average of 2.7 per nine innings this season, fewest among NL starters.

"You control what you can control," Kershaw told the team's website. "I can't control wins and losses. I can control not giving up runs. I have to pitch consistently, that's all I can do."

Kershaw, though, hasn't needed too much help when facing San Francisco lately. He's 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA in the last three matchups, including two this season.

Kershaw is also 9-4 with a 1.29 ERA in 18 career starts against the Giants (38-39), his best ERA against any NL opponent.

He'll try to add to those numbers while pitching opposite Lincecum (4-7, 4.52), who is 3-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his last four starts against the Dodgers.

The right-hander has also struggled with poor run support lately, getting a combined seven runs in his last seven games. That has helped limit him to one win this month despite a 2.92 ERA in four starts.

Lincecum gave up three runs and four hits over seven innings while striking out eight Friday against Miami but did not get a decision in a 6-3 loss.

"For the most part I felt good. I just made a couple of mistakes," he said. "You think you're making the right pitches and you get groundballs, but they don't go where you want them. That's the most frustrating part of the day. They scratched out a couple of runs."

Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young winner, will square off with Kershaw for the first time since the Dodgers' left-hander won the his only award in 2011.

While trying to beat Kershaw this time, Lincecum will seek to help the Giants avoid a fourth straight loss. San Francisco's attempt to snap that skid fell just short Tuesday in a 6-5 defeat, as it dropped below .500 this late into the season for the first time since the end of the 2008 campaign.

Brandon Belt homered in the seventh and doubled in the ninth to help cut a four-run deficit. Marco Scutaro's long fly ball, though, was tracked down by Matt Kemp to end the game.

Kemp also singled in his return from a stint on the disabled list for a strained right hamstring.

"I can't play timid. I have to let it go," he said. "And if it goes, it goes. Hamstrings are tricky, and you never know when they're good. But right now it feels good and I'm glad we got the win."

Kemp, batting .127 in his last 14 games against the Giants, is 0 for 10 versus Lincecum the past two seasons.
