Chad Billingsley (7-4, 4.14) vs. Jaime Garcia (8-4, 2.17).
COMMENTS (from Sax): Well, that first game back from the All-Star Break didn't go as planned. The Dodgers' 7-1 loss, driven by a tough outing by Clayton Kershaw (4.1 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 1 K) and 0-fers from Rafael Furcal, Matt Kemp, Manny Ramirez, James Loney, and Casey Blake (a combined 0-for-17 with no walks and 6 Ks), is one thing. But meanwhile, Tim Lincecum rolled the Giants to victory, and the Padres got an extra day off thanks to the parity-loving folks in the Commissioner's Office. Oh yeah, and this McCourt divorce stuff doesn't just mean that we ain't getting any relief help in the 'pen; it's so bad, even pitchers we don't even want on our team still get in the game (0.2 IP, 1 K, 1 H, 7.09 ERA). Can Chad Billingsley get us back on course before we fall into a tie for third place?
