Randy Wolf (0-0, 0.00) vs. Chris Young (0-0, 0.00).
COMMENTS: The Dodgers emerged from Opening Day with a 4-1 victory over long-time nemesis Jake Peavy, on a day when almost everyone did as we had hoped: Rafael Furcal and Orlando Hudson reached base and both stole a base to start the game; James Loney slugged both in with a 2RBI single to left; Matt Kemp homered and made a spectacular diving catch; Hiroki Kuroda got us into the seventh with only a scratch wound of a single first-inning run; Cory Wade and Hong-Chih Kuo held the lead; and Broxton shut them down in the ninth with 100 MPH balls of heat. Who needs that Manny Ramirez guy (who went 0-for-3 with 1K)?
The Dodgers owned Chris Young last year, beating him all three times (in two of the games, Young took the loss). But Young's a better pitcher than that (42-28 career), so let's see if last year's teammate Randy Wolf can beat him tonight. And did Vin Scully mention that Chris Young went to Princeton? Funny, that's the first time I've heard that.
