Chad Billingsley (11-9, 3.65) vs. Matt Cain (11-10, 3.19).
COMMENTS: Matt Cain tends to use the upper part of the strike zone more than most other pitchers. That said, he has a decent amount of wild pitches, including a league-total 12 in 2007. So why do we think that against the Dodger staff tonight, he'll be aiming low? Cain?
This Dodgers team--who stands to further crush their archrival's postseason hopes by beating them in the second game of the three-game series--only eked out a single hit yesterday, depending instead on a stellar shutout pitching performance from Clayton Kershaw to give them the victory. Cain needn't worry about the dangerous pitch in the dirt if no Dodger can get on base in the first place. Expect Cain to outduel Bills in a squeaker.
