Hiroki Kuroda (5-3, 3.55) vs. Kris Medlen (2-1, 2.85).
COMMENTS: The streaking Braves roll into town for a four-game series, and despite our own three-game walk-off win streak and four-game win streak, we should be worried. Atlanta, with an identical 31-22 record and first place in the NL East, has won its last eight games (including sweeping the Phillies and Pirates), as well as seven of its last ten road games. Oh yeah, and the Dodgers are 2-7 against the NL East this year.
Can we keep our perfect homestand alive with a win in today's game? Well if it weren't for this Medlen kid, we might get away with it. So you know who has to take the mound for us tonight in relief, right?
This is indeed also the acting Lakers* thread (6p PT tipoff). Go Lakers! And I good luck to the ten SoSG readers vying for a shirt!
