Chad Billingsley (10-9, 3.26) vs. Jonathan Sanchez (8-6, 4.46).
COMMENTS: The Giants took Game 1. The Dodgers took Game 2. Tonight is Game 3 and will therefore decide which team wins the series (what do they call this, again?). The Dodgers couldn't have been more different in the two games; in Game 1 the bats were alive but couldn't overcome the starting pitching disaster, while in Game 2 the bats were dead but the starting pitching held San Francisco scoreless. The only consistent part has been watching The Misadventures of Fred Lewis, as he misplayed balls both evenings. That gives us Dodger fans someone to mock out in left field, a tradition when the Giants come to town. Sanchez was a disaster in his last start (81 pitches when he was pulled in the third inning); Billingsley was great in his (7.2 innings of two-run ball, giving Chad the win). Let's keep those traditions going too, okay?
