Clayton Kershaw (1-3, 4.02) vs. Kyle Lohse (13-3, 3.73).
COMMENTS: A day game following a night game may be tough on the players, but it can't come soon enough for the obsessive fan (i.e., me) tempted to read too much into a rotten start by Derek Lowe. Manny Ramirez's tenure as a Dodger is only five games old (record: 2-3), so the honeymoon phase of the relationship is still going strong. And why not? Dude already has three homers and seven RBIs for us.
A weekend in San Francisco awaits the Dodgers after they try to salvage the series finale against the Cardinals.
STAT OF THE DAY: Russell Martin, when batting in front of Ramirez: 5-for-22.
