Chad Billingsley (4-6, 3.68) vs. Mike Pelfrey (2-6, 5.33).
COMMENTS: Billingsley looks to keep the Dodgers' winning streak alive (okay, it's only a one-game streak, but when you've lost six of the last eight, you'll take it), and the Dodgers try and see if their nine-run outburst last night carries any momentum into this afternoon's game. Given Joe Torre's penchant for mixing up the lineup, momentum will likely be lost. But at least we're going up against the Mets' version of Mark Hendrickson (a tall (6'7") pitcher with a losing record (6.08 ERA in May)). Maybe the Dodgers can keep their bats in with Pelfrey? (Wow, that was a stretch of a pun. Sorry.)
