Hiroki Kuroda (6-4, 3.10) vs. Clay Buchholz (9-4, 2.67).
COMMENTS: Tony Jackson is right: The Dodgers just can't seem to hang with the big boys in the AL. If they can't beat the young (Felix Doubront) or the old (Tim Wakefield), what chance do they have against Clay Buchholz? Facing a sweep without even having faced Jon Lester or John Lackey reminds you how tough it is in the AL East. But hey, we only have to win our division to make the playoffs, so one step at a time. Salvaging a game in Boston would be a good start, but the odds look kinda crappy (even if Accuscore is mysteriously giving the Red Sox only a 51% chance to win). And if anyone on the Dodgers' staff can handle the pressure of Fenway, it's Kuroda. Another nationally televised game, boys — do us proud!
