Last season, the Angels failed to win a single game against the Dodgers.
With Shohei Ohtani leading the major leagues in home runs, it will be interesting to see if the Angels can get a different result in this series.
The starting pitchers for Game 1 will be Clayton Kershaw for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Reed Demers for the Los Angeles Angels.
Clayton Kershaw will take the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they look to end their losing streak.
The Dodgers just dropped a shocking three-game home sweep to rival and challenger San Francisco, dropping them to third place in the division. However, the Dodgers will look to turn things around in a two-game series against the Angels.
Game 1 starter Clayton Kershaw, who is tied for the National League lead in wins (8), is coming off his second straight shutout against the Angels.
With 200 MLB wins under his belt and 3,000 career strikeouts on the line, it will be interesting to see if Kershaw can continue his streak of shutouts against the Angels for a third straight season.
Meanwhile, “Major League Baseball’s” home run leader, Shohei Ohtani, will try to break through Kershaw’s shield.

However, even he is no match for Kershaw.
In his major league career, Ohtani has yet to record a single hit in a two-hit matchup against Kershaw.
