From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:
Dodgers: Wolf encountered his usual first-inning struggles against the Padres, then just kept struggling. He was victimized twice by No. 8 hitter Geoff Blum with first base open on a two-run double and a two-run single. He was charged with five runs on eight hits in five innings and needed 95 pitches to get there. It was his second consecutive start of only five innings and he's allowed nine runs in those 10 innings.
Mets: El Duque allowed no runs for third time on four starts, Wednesday night against the Phillies. He allowed three hits and walked four in six innings. He has allowed runs -- a total of four, three earned -- in only two of his past 33 innings.
