The San Francisco Giants travel to Los Angeles to face the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers lead the Giants by four games and this will be the first time the Giants' pitchers will face Dodgers' superstar Matt Kemp.
The Giants have some momentum, as they have won two straight, including a thrilling extra inning victory on Sunday, against the Brewers.
The Dodgers, on the other hand, endured a lengthy rain-delay in Chicago, then proceeded to lose a tough extra inning battle against the Cubs, as Javy Guerra blew a ninth-inning lead.
We will see how the Giants' pitchers attack Kemp, who is off to a monster start in 2012. Kemp leads the league in home runs with 12 and runs scored with 28. He also has 27 RBI, which is 12 more than the nearest Giant, Pablo Sandoval, who is on the disabled list due to hand surgery.
Kemp is also leading the league with an .816 SLG and an incredible 1.286 OPS. This tells you that when Kemp hits the ball, he is hitting it with authority and doing major damage to the opposition.
Starting the three games for the Giants in Los Angeles will be Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Lincecum. Let's take a look at how each pitcher could attack Matt Kemp.
