Chad Billingsley (6-7) vs. Jered "I'm Not Jeff" Weaver (7-7).
COMMENTS: Okay, so we won last night's game 6-0, with a surprisingly effective performance from starter Chan Ho Park and two--count 'em, two!--home runs from a punchless offense. Before you get all excited, remember that we won the opening game of a series three other times this month, and we went on to win only one of those three series. Me, I'm still concerned about the Red Scare of the AL West-leading Angels; if we are to make like the caption in the above poster, such that "the people and the army are one," can we please gather the resources to drown out the Reds in the crowd and on the field tonight? (That's right, yet another historical-reference Game Thread, brought to you by your comrades at SoSG.)
And thanks very much to SoSG reader John G for his kindness and generosity in offering up tickets for tonight's game!
