Vicente Padilla (9-6, 4.72) vs. Max Scherzer (9-8, 4.10).
COMMENTS: So much for the soft part of the schedule. While the Rockies are beating the teams they're supposed to beat, the Dodgers are alternating wins and losses like a three-card Monte dealer on meth. What was supposed to be a September cakewalk has turned into the pie-eating contest scene from Stand by Me. Although SoSG Sax tells us the Dodgers still have a 99% chance of making the playoffs, time is running out for the bats to awaken from their hibernation. This limp to the finish line could be curdling a sweet season. Bah.
