Esteban Loaiza (0-1) vs. Dan Haren (0-0).
COMMENTS: After a dramatic ninth-inning victory off of San Diego closer Trevor Hoffman, the Dodgers travel to Chase Field and its new HDTV video screen to face the other NL West-leading team. Those of us here in LA will have to watch Esteban Loaiza take the mound for the Dodgers in what is likely fewer than four and a half trillion colors, but at least our TV screen didn't cost $11M. Then again, Loaiza is costing the Dodgers $7M this year (he earned $1.17M from the Dodgers last year for his one win), so maybe that TV screen wasn't such a bad investment after all. We'll see after tonight's game.
The Dodgers have allowed only 11 runs this year, the fewest RA in the majors (St. Louis has allowed 13 runs).
