Playoff Rotation Set

From Tony Jackson:

As we already knew, Derek Lowe and Chad Billingsley will pitch the first two games. As we suspected, Hiroki Kuroda will pitch Game 3. Joe was non-committal on Game 4, but it sounds like Lowe will come back on three days' rest. There would be an off-day before Game 5, so that likely would be Billingsley on regular rest. If Lowe isn't the Game 4 starter, it likely would be Maddux, as Joe confirmed that Kershaw will come out of the bullpen for long relief.
