DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 20-14
Chad Billingsley (8-3, 2.73) vs. Derek Holland (1-3, 6.54).
COMMENTS: Conditions are ripe for this to be a very good day for Los Angeles sports fans. This afternoon the Dodgers will try to build on yesterday's interleague success, sending their ace Billingsley for the series win against the rookie Holland, who has bounced back and forth between the Rangers' bullpen and rotation.
This evening the Lakers will go for the whole NBA Finals enchilada in Orlando. (We'll have a separate Game Thread for that.) So pick up some Chipotle to go, fire up a six-pack, plant yourself in front of the television and/or computer and get ready to comment all day. Your teams need you!
