DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 19-14
Randy Wolf (3-2, 3.62) vs. Scott Feldman (5-1, 4.01).
COMMENTS: Such is my NL-centricity that I hadn't heard of Feldman, although he's been in the majors since 2005. The Rangers used Feldman as a middle reliever until 2008, when he was converted into a starter. He went 6-8 with a 5.29 ERA last year but is strong as a starter this season, going 5-0 before his first loss to the Blue Jays in his last outing.
Wolf is coming off a rough start against the Phillies in which he gave up six earned runs over 6 1/3 innings. The Dodgers still can't score consistently, and right now it's unclear whether it's because they're playing in an AL park or if the bats are still simply sleeping. Will the Dodgers' traditional June swoon continue with a dreaded third consecutive loss? Insert lightning joke here.
