Chad Billingsley (13-10, 3.13) vs. Brandon Webb (19-6, 3.19).
COMMENTS: Andre Ethier is on a Manny Ramirez-like offensive tear. Angel Berroa is batting .389 over the past seven games, including a rare home run. Derek Lowe is getting run support. And the Dodgers are winning games even when Manny overruns first base and Ethier overruns second. Our sixth win in a row last night, coming on the heels of a gut-punch eight-game losing streak, is truly charmed, and since we at SoSG are a superstitious lot, this GameThread goes up at :10 past the hour once again. This afternoon's matchup between a Cy Young winner of the past versus a Cy Young winner of the future gets Fox Game of the Week status, so let's keep the magic gloves on, the lineup unchanged, and the mojo working...and maybe, just maybe, first place could be ours by dinner time.
