If you are about to get your first taste of the San Francisco Giants-Los Angeles Dodgers rivalry, there is no better way for a Giants starter to join the fray than with a matchup against Clayton Kershaw.
Giants rookie Shaun Anderson (2-1, 3.97 ERA) will have such an honor when he takes the mound Tuesday at Dodger Stadium. Anderson's outing will come one day after fellow rookie Tyler Beede earned his first career victory by defeating the Dodgers.
Anderson will be making just his seventh career start, but he appears to have settled in quickly. The right-hander picked up two wins over his last three starts and has a 3.32 ERA over his last three outings, all this month.
