Chad Billingsley (1-0, 7.07) vs. Scott Olsen (0-1, 11.74).
COMMENTS: Casey Blake and Carlos Monasterios stepped up for the Dodgers yesterday. Who will step up today? I'll tell you who it won't be: Vicente Padilla, who was placed on the 15-day DL for sorearm foreness. Or forearm soreness. Whatever. Anyway, a win today would mean a series win against the Nationals, which would go a long way to making Dodger fans feel better about our next series against the equally mediocre Mets.
