From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:
Dodgers: That ERA indicates Lowe has nothing to be ashamed of this season, as he's mostly been the victim of low run support and bad luck. There's a lot to be said for taking the ball every five days, year after year, and delivering quality start after quality start. He wasn't quite up to the task in his last start before the break, getting roughed up for four earned runs on 10 hits by the Marlins, but he was the only Dodgers starter to take it into the seventh inning that week.
Giants: Morris was shaky in his last outing before the break, allowing six runs in six innings against the Reds. He has just one quality start in his past four starts and has seen his ERA rise to the highest it has been this season. Morris has been a much better pitcher at home (2.60) than on the road (4.45) this year. He has been solid against the Dodgers (1-0, 3.68 ERA) but is 4-5 with a 5.24 ERA lifetime.
