Ted Lilly (8-10, 3.58) vs. Jonathan Sanchez (10-8, 3.29).
COMMENTS: Claude Monet had a beard that even Casey Blake would envy. But that isn't the reason why we've led this GameThread with one of his key impressionistic works. No, with only 16 games left for the season, this is one of few chances left for impending free agent and late 2010 gun-for-hire Ted Lilly to show his stuff.
In eight starts with the Dodgers, Lilly is 5-2 with an ERA+ of 115 (just north of his career average, and basically on pace with his first half of the season with the Cubs). So I'm guessing Lilly pads his resume with a nice outing tonight, winning the series for the Dodgers, whose bats will finally wake up in the rubber match to leave San Francisco reeling.
