7/26 Gamethread: Giants at Dodgers


And yet all the Giants have to do today is eke out a one-run win — 1-0, 2-1, 15-14, whatever — and they leave LA having earned a four-game draw, on the road, against arguably the top team in baseball.


A day after getting his first win with the Giants, Gabe Kapler is making a few tweaks despite facing another lefty.


LF — Mike Yastrzemski (L) — .272/.334/.518, 121 wRC+ (4-11, 2B) 2B — Wilmer Flores (R) — .317/.361/.487, 120 wRC+ (4-12, HR) 1B — Darin Ruf (R) — N/A (1-4) DH — Hunter Pence (R) — .297/.358/.552, 128 wRC+ (0-7) 3B — Donovan Solano (R) — .330/.360/.456, 116 wRC+ (1-6, 2B) C — Tyler Heineman (S) — .273/.273/.636 (12 PAs) (3-6) RF — Jaylin Davis (S) — .167/.255/.238, 39 wRC+ (47 PAs) (2-7, HR) SS — Brandon Crawford (L) — .228/.304/.350, 74 wRC+ (1-6) CF — Mauricio Dubón (R) — .274/.306/.434, 95 wRC+ (0-10) LHP — Drew Smyly — 4.45 ERA, 4.79 FIP, 68 Ks and 21 BBs in 62.2 IP (1 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 0 ER)


Pollock (R) — .266/.327/.468, 108 wRC+ (1-2) C — Will Smith (R) — .253/.337/.571, 132 wRC+ (1-3, HR) LHP — Julio Urías — 2.49 ERA, 3.43 FIP, 85 Ks and 27 BBs in 79.2 IP


But a day after working three walks in his first game of the year, Slater is out of the lineup due to a sore hip.


He had a nasty collision with the wall while catching a Corey Seager fly ball on Saturday, and it’s unclear if he’s available off the bench.
