James McDonald (1-1, 7.11) vs. Josh Geer (0-0, 4.91).
- Welcome home, Dodgers, says Eric Stephen of True Blue LA. Just check your speaker volume before exploring Eric's post.
- A win tonight would "almost certainly" give the Dodgers their first perfect April at home, writes Jon "I know Alyssa" Weisman at Dodger Thoughts.
- Who is Josh Geer? Just another rookie pitcher...the Dodgers haven't seen before. Uh-oh. (I know it's not Geer's first major league start, but still.)
- Scott Elbert has been optioned to Double-A Chattanooga, presumably to make room for Cory Wade, writes Tony Jackson.
- Going to tomorrow's game? Ready your Elvis costume: The theme of the post-game fireworks show is "Vegas Night" (this guy can wear the same outfit!).
