Randy Wolf (5-6, 3.55) vs. Joe Martinez (2-0, 5.87).
COMMENTS: The suddenly-third-place Giants find themselves in need of an ace, but he doesn't start until tomorrow. Instead, they're turning to the hard-headed rookie Martinez, who won his first game back from the disabled list last week. Martinez matches up against the wily vet Wolf, who will...(shakes Magic 8-Ball)...receive a no-decision? There's a surprise.
James Loney figures to return to the lineup, but don't expect to see Orlando Hudson, who suffered a groin strain in last night's game. (Although Hudson will undoubtedly try to wheedle his way into starting.) And Manny Ramirez, who went 2-for-4 last night, just might be rediscovering his stroke — if not his ability to ignore distractions.
