Eric Stults (4-2, 4.80) vs. Javier Vazquez (9-7, 2.99).
COMMENTS: The Dodgers are 6-10 in their last 16 games, and it doesn't get easier after today. Tomorrow they enter the unfriendly confines of AT&T Park, followed by a trip to Arizona. Both the Giants and Diamondbacks are 7-3 in their past ten games. Oh, and Albert Pujols and the Cardinals come to town after that. Followed by the Cubs.
But first things first. Stults will try to help the Dodgers salvage a series split against Atlanta today, but Vazquez, who trails only Tim Lincecum with 164 strikeouts on the season, will try to continue to take advantage of a struggling Dodgers offense.
You know what would be nice? One for the road. Let's hope the Dodgers turn their frowns upside-down and board that charter with a one-game win streak.
