Jon Garland (1-2, 3.81) vs. Chris Young (1-0, 1.88).
Before I get into this Game Thread, let me confess: growing up, I was never a fan of Thor. Struggling through the onerously difficult language was difficult enough (I felt at times I was reading a foreign language), but skirmishes among powerful Norse gods always failed to resonate with the day-to-day trappings of my mortal* life. It was easily my least favorite regular Marvel comic, and that includes Howard the Duck.
Back on this earth, the Dodgers look clearly mortal despite a day of rest to Norse their wounds. After last night's depressing game, in which the Dodgers had leads on three separate occasions, they'll have to see if they're going to come out energized and ready to hammer, or roll out yet another Loki performance. Heck, I can't even Sif through all the wreckage of this season, despite it being only May. In fact, if I had to guess, I'd say today's game stretches our current losing streak to Thor in a row.
(*) As far as I'll confess in this blog.
