Hiroki Kuroda Eric Stults (0-0, -.--) vs. Brandon Webb Yusmeiro Petit (0-0, -.--).
COMMENTS: So much for the battle of the aces. Hiroki Kuroda was placed on the 15-day DL yesterday and Brandon Webb is missing his start with a shoulder stiffness. (Enough Schadenfreude for ya?) Enter the understudies: Mets-killer Stults gets called up from Albuquerque, and Petit hopes to come up big in place of the Diamondbacks' ace.
It took all of five games, but the Dodgers are now in sole possession of last place. Let's hope they can escape the cellar faster than it takes an AIG executive to spend his bonus.
