Jon Garland (0-1, 11.25) vs. Derek Lowe (2-2, 1.82).
- Derek Lowe, playing for the Dodgers: 54-48, 3.59 ERA,, 1.230 WHIP, 6.0 K/9 (120 ERA+)
- Derek Lowe, playing against the Dodgers: 1-2, 3.06 ERA, 1.361 WHIP, 3.9 K/9 (I can't find his ERA+ here. Who am I, Eric Stephen?)
Do you like sweaty men? Then you'll love tonight's game, which pits The Sweatiest Man on Earth, Lowe, against Garland, who made the Dodgers sweat in his first start by proving beyond a doubt that perhaps he maybe wasn't fully recovered from that strained oblique.
The Braves dropped an eight-spot on the Dodgers in last night's ninth, but if the Dodger bats can find their sweet spots tonight, they'll be chasing Lowe and the sweat spot on his uniform to the showers.
Sax's note: I will be there in person to document Dodger Stadium under martial law. I will not be wearing a Braves jersey. Ping us with an email, or in the GT, if you're at the game and want to say hi (cognizant that mobile phone coverage in the Stadium trails Burkina Faso).
