Clayton "Bender" Kershaw (10-6, 2.88 ERA) vs. Wandy "Rodriguez" Rodriguez (0-2, 4.74 ERA)
Nobody seems to have told the Dodgers that the Pirates aren't the scuffling squad of years past. L.A. already has the first two games of the series in their pocket, and they're sending Public Enemy #1 out there for a good chance to take the season series to 6-0.
We need every victory we can muster, because Pittsburgh still has a hold (albeit a tenuous one) on the last NL Wildcard slot, and the Giants stubbornly refuse to lose when it is most important that they do so. Seriously, what is going on up there?
Let's hope the guys aren't exhausted from all that baserunning last night.
|Come on, bring back the hat for Willie!|
