Chad Billingsley (2-1, 4.85) vs. Doug Davis (0-3, 8.87).
COMMENTS: On this Cinco de Mayo, Chad Billingsley can act as a stopper of sorts by helping the team rebound from Clayton Kershaw's putrid start last night. Billingsley has already put together two solid starts, against Washington and Pittsburgh, and if he continues to follow another Chad's advice, the Dodgers may be in position to continue their home series winning streak.
Doug Davis has had a rough season thus far, but if you remember from his Arizona days, he does pretty well against the Dodgers. "He is 5-4 for his career against the Dodgers, with a 3.51 ERA in 12 starts," says MLB.com, so let's see if the Dodgers can build on the six runs they scored last night.
Oh, and Sax will be attending tonight's game; look for the guy on the Field Level trying the Victory Knot. And ping him with a comment in this thread (or an email to us) if you're also going to be in attendance tonight and want to grab a beer.
