The Dodgers and Giants have split the first two games of Homerpalooza, with twelve home runs between the two teams so far in the series. With the heat wave in Los Angeles and a day game today, the ball figures to keep flying.

Clayton Kershaw takes the hill for the Dodgers, his 10th day game in 17 starts this year. It’s his second start since returning from the injured list, having thrown five innings in New York last week.
