Chad Billingsley (11-6, 3.73) vs. Mitchell Boggs (1-1, 3.78).
COMMENTS: Chad Billingsley brings his Thunder Thighs and sore hammy back to the mound tonight after skipping his last start; Bills saw the Cards in St. Louis earlier this season and coasted through his first five innings before imploding in the sixth with a six-run debacle. On the other side, young Boggs is 4-3 lifetime with a 5.61 ERA, and has 31 Ks but 20 BBs over 43 IP this year. Dodger fans are hoping that the team, mired in a losing spurt of four straight home games and seven losses in their last 11 games, can successfully wade boggs and get our offense back on track.
To help the team along, we're pulling out all the stops (or at least, two of them) for this game. Firstly, we're not calling out our opponent's team name in the Game Thread title, which seemed to work well on Sunday. And secondly, SoSG Sax will attend tonight's game; Sax is 6-0 this year at the Stadium. What more could you need, Bills? Let's go, Dodgers!
