Josh Beckett (0-2, 3.26) vs. Wei-Yin Chen (0-2, 4.00).
Since the Dodgers hadn't been back to Oriole Park at Camden Yards since 2002, Mother Nature wanted to make sure their first visit in 13 years was a doozy. Hence today's double-header, whose second game pits two hard-luck starters. Beckett had two starts in which he gave up three runs each over 6.0 and 5.0 IP, but his third and most recent start was a tough-luck outing with 8.1 IP and 1 ER, awarding Beckett the loss. Brutal.
Chen has also had three starts this year, the last two of which were both quality starts (6.1 and 6.0 IP, 3 ER each), but also both of which rewarded him with losses. Both starters go out there tonight to one of the majors' most beautiful stadiums, but flanked by tired teammates who have already played one today.
But if I could Wei-Yin here, I'd guess that the Dodgers will end up splitting the doubleheader (in 2002, we went 2-1 @ Camden Yards). That is, unless Juan Uribe could...tip the scales?
