Game 64 Thread: June 10 vs. Padres, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (0-1, 4.91) vs. Greg Maddux (3-4, 3.48).

COMMENTS: Kershaw...Maddux. 20 years old...42 years old. Lefty...righty. Zero wins...350 wins. It's a game of contrasts in San Diego tonight, yet the plights of the Dodgers and Padres are disturbingly similar. The Dodgers are 3.5 games out of first place and the Padres are 6.5 back, with the Giants wedged firmly between them. However, the Padres have won five straight, including a four-game sweep of the Mets. The Dodgers have not won a series in their past five tries. Additionally, the Dodgers have lost both times the Lakers have played the Celtics in the NBA Finals. (Oddly enough, so have the Lakers.) So while you're flipping back and forth between both games tonight, think good thoughts for the L.A. team that needs to win. Whichever one that is.

Martin on Maddux: "He's a simple pitcher. He's going to stay away, use the two-seamer, make you hit the ball where his defense plays. He won't try to strike you out. He'll make you just miss it, and he's been like that a long time."
