Rich Hill provides boost to Dodgers rotation (0:58)

The Giants held a commanding 6.5-game lead at the All-Star break, but after losing the first two games of this series to the Dodgers are now 3 games back -- a season-high lead for L.A. The Giants are 26th in the majors in scoring since the break and the Dodgers are first. If Giants fans are feeling a little anxious, they should. The Dodgers are better right now. Without Clayton Kershaw.

USC coach Clay Helton reported some good news on second-team All-Pac-12 tackle Chad Wheeler, who has not practiced in two weeks due to plantar fasciitis. Wheeler did not report any pain after running on a modified treadmill, but it's still unclear if he'll be ready to play against Alabama. China Edoga would likely start at left tackle if Wheeler is unable to go.
