Fear not, loyal Dodgers fans! The off-day afternoon is not wasted, as all four NL West rivals are in play today:
First up has the second-place Rockies @ Nationals, Aaron Cook (0-1, 5.56) vs. Craig Stammen (0-0, 15.63). We all know how this will end up, though on paper it looks like a duel of .500 teams. 4:05p first pitch.
Next up we've go the last-place Diamondbacks' Rodrigo Lopez (1-0, 4.09) hosting our good friend Brad Penny (1-0, 0.64) and the Cardinals. Plus, this game is the AtBat.TV free game of the day, meaning that iPhone At Bat 2010 customers can follow this game live! 6:40p first pitch.
Finally, still trying to catch their breath after getting the dagger from Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers yesterday, the Giants and Matt Cain (0-0, 4.26) visit the Padres and Clayton "I'm Not Kershaw" Richard (0-2, 4.38). Can the Giants even muster any semblance of energy at all, after such a brutal, season-killing, hope-destroying, guts-ripped-out defeat yesterday, marking the Giants' first (and not last!) series loss of 2010? 7:05p first pitch.
