Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants Prediction

The Los Angeles Dodgers will send out Mitch White for the second-half opener against the Giants.

White is 1-2 on the season with a 4.20 ERA on the year. However, in the last 30 days, his xFIP is 5.82 with just 17% of strikeouts and 10.2% of walks.

The right-hander has struggled a bit, giving up a BABIP of .311. Lefties have hit a .388 wOBA and ISO of .226 in their last 34 plate appearances against White.

Meanwhile, the Giants will have more lefties than righties in their lineup. While the Giants strike out a lot, White doesn't really have put-away stuff, which should help the Giants get some base runners.

And they won't need many base runners and runs tonight with Carlos Rodon on the mound.

Rodon is a left-hander with an 8-5 record and an ERA of 2.66. He's got a 3.41 xFIP in the last 30 days and has struck out 31.5% of batters.

On top of that, Rodon has kept walked allowed down and he's also keeping power down from both sides of the plate.

He'll have a tough assignment against the mighty Dodgers, however, good pitching usually beats good hitting anyway.

Trea Turner, Max Muncy, and Hanser Alberto have been hitting solid power off lefties recently but, against, Rodon hasn't allowed much power lately to begin with.

Plus, Turner, Freddie Freeman, Muncy, Alberto, and Gavin Lux have all struck out at a high rate against lefties in the last 30 days. Power simply doesn't matter when a batter can't make contact in the first place

I'll take the Giants at +125 with Rodon on the mound going up against Mitch White.
