Clayton Kershaw (0-2, 7.29) vs. Jake Peavy (2-3, 5.74).
COMMENTS: So a 7-0 home record to start out this season ain't good enough for you, eh? We now need to challenge the record for the franchise's longest home winning streak to start a season (nine games, in 1946)? Looking at Peavy, the signs look good for the Dodgers, despite his historical dominance over Los Angeles; we beat him and the Padres 4-1 to open the season on April 6, and Peavy has given up 11ER in 11 IP over his last two starts (both losses). On the flipside, though, Kershaw hasn't had a win in any of his four outings this year, and his last two starts aren't anything to write home about, either (15ER over 9IP, both losses).
Accuscore is giving the Dodgers only a 53% chance of winning tonight's game. And by the looks of the guy on the ESPN video preview, he's not happy about that whatsoever.
He must not know about the Viva Las Vegas postgame fireworks. We'll alert the lone Dodgers beat reporter to print a story on that, stat.
