DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 24-16
Clayton Kershaw (3-5, 4.13) vs. John Lackey (2-2, 6.10).
COMMENTS: After last night's delightfully unanticipated victory, can the Dodgers pull another improbability from their bag of tricks? Kershaw has been taking more wild rides than Mr. Toad, while Lackey has been doing his best Frank McCourt impression by owning the Dodgers (5-1 with a 1.50 ERA lifetime).
Off-day tomorrow (PCS alert!) as the Dodgers travel to Chicago to continue their interleague hijinks. Russell Martin may be coming alive and Manny Ramirez is scheduled to start shaking off the rust. If things weren't looking up before, they are now. Can't wait for the return of Manny's wonderful wonderful bat!
P.S.: Tonight's game is on ESPN. While we go Vinless, let's hope the Angels go winless.
