Chad Billingsley (0-0, -.--) vs. Eric Stults (1-0, 0.00).
Billingsley, who has a 2.62 career ERA against the Pads, somehow avoided Tommy John surgery due in part to an off-season regimen of platelet-rich plasma injections. He comes off the DL (displacing Tim Federowicz) to face old friend Stults, who threw five scoreless innings against the Mets last week.
The Dodgers went 11-7 against the Padres last season. If they want a winning record against them again, now would be a good time to start, don't you think?
