With the biggest series of the year for the Dodgers about to start in San Francisco, here is a look at how several members of the team have performed against the Giants, both this year and in their careers.

Dee Gordon has hit .275 (14-for-51) with a .302 on-base percentage and seven runs scored in 13 games against the Giants, including 12 starts, this season. But he has also stolen eight bases in eight attempts and has been successful in 15 consecutive stolen base attempts against San Francisco dating back to 2012.

Three of the six home runs were hit against Sergio Romo.
