Hiroki Kuroda (3-6, 4.04) vs. Runelvys Hernandez (0-1, 5.40).
COMMENTS: Welcome Back, Kuroda! Little bit of 70's humor for you there. If yesterday's frittered-away six-run lead wasn't enough to confound you, then how about the gigantic question mark that is the return of Hiroki Kuroda? Will we see complete-game Hiroki or shelled-in-three-innings Hiroki? Shirimasen! Little bit of Japanese humor for you there.
Meanwhile, the Astros' Hernandez is equally unpredictable, but only because this is his second start of the season. The only certainty in today's game is that Lance Berkman is a beast and should be avoided at all costs. And we miss Juan Pierre! Little bit of Dodgers humor for you there.
