Derek Lowe (2-3, 4.43) vs Manny Parra (1-2, 5.79).
COMMENTS: Yesterday, in an effort to help Andruw Jones get his groove back, we published his match.com profile. Today, the SoSG research team did some digging at the Los Angeles County Records Archive Center and uncovered the profile's unfortunate counterpart:
Ain't love a bitch, Andruw?
As for the game, Derek Lowe goes against Manny Parra. Here is what I know about Manny Parra:
- Last year he pitched a perfect game.
- He was born exactly 25 years, to the day, after Kevin Pollak.
- He is often compared to Jack Cust and Jorge Cantu because each has a first name whose vowel-consonant pattern matches that of their last name.
Anyways, the Dodgers have now dropped 5 in a row after winning 10 of 11...as if you didn't know. In a desperate attempt to stop the bleeding, SoSG is sending one of the Sons to Miller Park to cheer on the Dodgers. If you're also going to Milwaukee to check out the game (umm...why?), let us know!
