Chad Billingsley (3-4, 3.80) vs. Blake Beavan (3-5, 5.22).
If the Dodgers are to win today, take this series and head back home with a head of steam to take on the Angels, then Chad Billingsley will have to channel the mojo he mustered in his last start, when he nearly matched Cliff Lee to keep the Dodgers in the game against the Phillies. Fortunately, Safeco's park factor is on his side; the Seattle park currently ranks as the 29th most pitcher-friendly stadium in the majors. Also, SoSG readers Jason, Paul, and Chris of dodgerfan.net (one more and we have the new Beatles!) will be in attendance to make sure nothing goes wrong. Right, guys?
