Clayton Kershaw (4-5, 4.28) vs. Shawn Estes (2-3, 4.73).
COMMENTS: Five regular-season games left! Estes knows the Dodgers, having pitched for every other NL West team over his career. However, that doesn't mean Estes knows how to beat the Dodgers, as he's 6-9 with a 5.27 ERA lifetime against them.
Last time the Dodgers faced Estes, they beat him by scoring five earned runs in five innings. They'll need some more of that bat magic tonight, especially since Kershaw figures to be on a short leash and the bullpen, already used in yesterday's game, will probably work tonight too.
As for the Diamondbacks, seeing them lose early yesterday was inspiring, but the only way for the Dodgers to make the post-season (and prepare to play actual winning teams) is to win win win themselves. The magic number is three. Pray we alter it even further.
