Clayton Kershaw (3-5, 4.50) vs. Max Scherzer (0-2, 2.65).
COMMENTS: After Dan Haren and Brandon Webb each got drubbed by the Dodgers, 7-0 and 7-2 respectively, in the first two games of this series, the Diamondbacks look to their stopper,
Randy Johnson Max Scherzer? You mean the guy who hasn't started a game since May 17? After the Dodgers edged into sole possession of first place with yesterday's stirring outburst after a four-inning pitchers' duel? After Justin Upton was caught losing fly balls in the sun, letting Manny Ramirez get a two run ground-rule double on what should have been an easy end-of-inning out? There's so much momentum behind the Dodgers now, winners of their last seven straight games, that this kind of crazy move to Scherzer might just make sense. SoSG's own Alex Cora will be there at the game today to witness the final game of the homestand, likely frying in the hot sun like an egg behind third base. Look for the dehydrated guy gasping for air!
