Nathan Eovaldi (1-0, 3.60) vs. Bud Norris (5-8, 3.73).
What's it like to go from playing the best team in the majors to the worst? The Dodgers just got swept by the Phillies (77-40, a .658 winning percentage) and tonight they face the Astros (38-79, .325). Will the results differ? I sure hope so.
This plummeting elevator to the basement is good news for Nathan Eovaldi (that's E-Valdee), as the Dodgers actually have a chance of providing him with some run support. The Astros are reeling from a crushing defeat to the Diamondbacks, who scored seven runs in the last three innings of last night's game. Take it away, Nathan.
Sax's note: Mrs. Sax and I will be at the game tonight (field level, third base side). Holler (with a comment) if you're going to be there and want to grab a beer (Fred's Brim, Mr. Customer, and Josh S.; you had all mentioned here that you might be there tonight; I'll shoot you an email).
