Get it? Wrecked home opener?
Josh Beckett (0-1, 4.50) vs. Clayton Richard (0-1, 14.54)
It may be April 9th, but it's still Opening Day somewhere! Today that somewhere is San Diego. The Dodgers are looking to wreck the Padres' home opener for the second year in a row. Last year's matchup featured Matt Kemp's first home run of the season. I say it happens again today.
Looking at the ERAs alone, this doesn't look like a dazzling pitching matchup, but their Clayton has managed to give us fits and tantrums in the past. Here's hoping the suddenly-resurgent Dodger offense makes him think, "I'm out of my league."
Weird start time today, kids! Better blow off that afternoon meeting!
