Derek Lowe (5-7, 4.05) vs. John Lackey (5-1, 1.65).
COMMENTS: A series victory against the Angels, with a chance of a series sweep? Last night's gutty shutout performance by The Law Offices of Billingsley, Broxton, and Saito earned the Dodgers a win even when their offense--back to sputtering offense, mind you--can't even muster a single hit (yet still picks up the win!). Lackey has a streak of 13 quality starts dating back to last year; Lowe has been unpredictable of late (3-3 in his last seven starts). If we are to hope for any fallen angels today, Lowe had better bring his A-game--if the last Dodger day game is any indication, the Dodger bats will likely take the day off.
