MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers are locked into their playoff seeding and have one final weekend run-through in San Francisco, playing a Giants team that needs to sweep their rivals to finish the season at .500.

Back on August 3, the Giants had the third-best record in the National League at 61-49 (.555), but have since lost 32 of 49 games to stay home for yet another October, save for Sunday’s series finale on the first day of the month.

The Dodgers helped accelerate the process by winning three of four games against the Giants last weekend at Dodger Stadium. That evened the season series between these two longtime rivals, with the Dodgers and Giants winning five games apiece against one another.

The Dodgers need two wins this weekend to secure 100 wins for a third straight season and fourth consecutive full season.

Max Muncy has 25 home runs in 78 career games against the Giants, and this season has four home runs and 12 RBI in only six games against San Francisco.

The Giants will start three rookie pitchers during the weekend series.
