Vicente Padilla (11-6, 4.55) vs. Jason Marquis (15-12, 3.95).
Finally, a meaningless game! The NL WEST CHAMPION Dodgers will rest for Wednesday and see what Padilla can offer against the Cardinals in the playoffs. The NL Wild Card Rockies will also rest for Wednesday, perhaps conserving Marquis' arm for the Phillies. Rest up, Dodger fans: It's going to be an exciting month!
UPDATE: Today's storylines:
- Will Kemp raise his average over .300? He's currently at .298 and needs to go 3 for 4 to reach .300. Statistically, 2 for 2 gets it done too.
- How many at-bats will Hudson get? Each AB earns him $10K.
- Will Brad Ausmus pull a Lou Piniella?
