From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:
Dodgers: Pitching on two days' rest after a earning the win in a two-inning relief appearance, Hendrickson's start against the Phillies on July 17 did not go well. He was charged with seven runs on 11 hits in three-plus innings, which not only cost the Dodgers the game, but put an additional strain on an already taxed bullpen.
Astros: Jennings was ineffective in his last outing on July 18, allowing seven runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Nationals. Jennings' biggest downfall was his walks -- all four batters who drew free passes ended up scoring. Jennings has won only once this year, and that was more than a month ago. Since defeating the Angels on June 19, Jennings has lost five games in a row.
