Clayton Kershaw (2-2 2.14) vs. Kyle Lohse (1-1, 2.52).
Lohse has had four starts this year, the most of which earned him his only win--but had to leave after 5.0 IP with a dislocated pinkie. Hey, we Dodgers know injuries; he should feel right at home at the Stadium.
Kershaw was nails the first three outings of the year: 2-1 record, 7.0 IP+ per game, 7+ Ks per game and no more than 3 BBs per game. His last two starts (vs. SD, @ NYM), a different story: 0-1 record, no more than 5.1 IP, 5 Ks and 4 BBs in each. According to the MLB.com game preview, "[Kershaw] hasn't lost velocity, but three two-out walks in an inning is a red flag." Sounds like they're trying to get into Kid K's head!
The Brewers definitely got into the Dodgers' heads last night, stealing a 6-4 victory by mesmerizing Los Angeles with with their new, horrifyingly putrid mustard-colored alternate jerseys. I can think of much better ways to use mustard-colored apparel.
So let's see if the Dodgers can win today's rubber match and come away a wiener.
(Oh, and Sax will be at the game today. I don't know if you've already bought Dodgers tickets yet, but post if you'll be there as well, and maybe we can grab a beer. Or at least a Dodger Dog. Ah, screw the GT theme; beer it is.)
