Jeff Weaver (0-0, 0.00) vs. Max Scherzer (0-2, 3.48).
COMMENTS: Look out, 1911 Tigers! The 2009 Dodgers go for a major league-tying record of 12 consecutive home victories tonight. And all without their Opening Day starter Hiroki Kuroda, who's still weeks away.
The Diamondbacks send Wunderkind Max Scherzer and his 8.71 K/9 rate against old friend Weaver, who earned this start based on his four scoreless innings against the Padres last Thursday.
A win tonight would give the Dodgers series sweeps against all four of their division rivals (if you can call a two-game series a sweep. Hey, why not?). Tomorrow the Dodgers leave the comfort of their NL West nest for only their fourth inter-division game...against the 7-17 Nationals.
Life is good. Enjoy it while you can.
