Stratton usually keeps the ball in the yard but he issues too many walks. The Dodgers have come out of the gates slow offensively but the Giants aren’t exactly stinging the ball either (they’ve scored just two runs combined in their first three games and were shut out on Saturday night). Hill struggles with lefties, which normally was a problem against the left-handed heavy Giants’ lineup. That said, the new-look G-Men only have three lefty regulars and shouldn’t cause much damage. I don’t expect the Giants to suddenly find their offensive stroke. I’ll lay the 1.5 on the runline with the Dodgers.
