Chad Billingsley (8-7, 3.87) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (6-1, 2.17).
Interesting bird, this Vogelsong. He started his baseball career with a seven-year stint in the majors, mostly with the Pirates, and underwent Tommy John surgery during that time. He then spent three years pitching in Japan, returning to the majors earlier this year with the Giants, to replace the injured but still-dreamy Barry Zito. Over his career, Vogelsong has appeared in ten games against the Dodgers, mostly in relief. He has a 5.96 ERA in those ten appearances. Naturally, he's currently in position to turn things around and shut down the Dodgers, whose recently concluded five-game winning streak will likely be their longest of the season.
