The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost the first two games of this series to the San Francisco Giants. They'll be looking for revenge tonight while also avoiding the series sweep. The Dodgers now trail the Giants by 1.5 games for the NL West lead, so this is clearly a very important game for them.

Matt Cain has not had much success against the Dodgers, going 3-8 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.403 WHIP in 20 career starts against Los Angeles. Capuano has given up four earned runs over 12 1/3 innings in his last two starts against San Francisco.
The Giants are 13-29 in Cains last 42 road starts vs. a team with a winning record. San Francisco is 0-4 in Cain's last 4 starts vs. a team with a winning record. The Dodgers are 7-1 in Capuano's last 8 starts during game 3 of a series. Los Angeles is 5-0 in its last 5 during game 3 of a series. Take the Dodgers Wednesday.
