DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 27-18
Eric Milton (2-0, 2.89) vs. Felix Hernandez (7-3, 2.74).
COMMENTS: Milton has pitched capably in four starts for the Dodgers, but tonight's "A" storyline is about King Felix. Hernandez has lost once to the Dodgers, but that was in 2006. Back then he was 20 years old and green; now, writers marvel at his maturity. Just what we need. Then again, the Dodger bats are primed after four home runs last night. If Andre Ethier, Russell Martin and Rafael Furcal can find their strokes around the time Manny returns, look out.
