John Ely (2-1, 3.51) vs. Armando Galarraga (1-0, 1.59).
COMMENTS: Welcome to (a tie for) first place! The Dodger fan's latest man-crush, John Ely, takes his 84-batters-without-a-walk streak to the mound this afternoon in order to continue the Dodgers' amazing interleague streak of...one win in a row. Hey, a journey of a thousand miles....
In news from the other dugout, Johnny Damon gets the start for the Tigers today. Oh, and this just in from Sax: "Armando Galarraga has a lot of 'A's in his name. And one 'O'." Ladies and gentlemen, the SoSG scouting department!
