Derek Lowe (8-10, 4.10) vs. Kyle Kendrick (10-5, 4.37).
COMMENTS: What, there are more games to play? Although this weekend's dual walk-off suckstravanganza against the Giants still lingers uncomfortably freshly in our minds, it's time to return our focus to the current schedule. So the Diamondbacks added a slugger of their own; can't control that, waiver wire shenanigans notwithstanding.
What to take solace in, then? Well, Lowe pitches well at Dodger Stadium and against the Phillies; he's due to rebound after his worst start of the year. 23-year-old (Youngster alert!) Kyle Kendrick is tied for the lead in wins for the Phillies, although he has a 6.75 ERA in two career starts against the Dodgers. The prognosis? Things could be worse.
