Scoreboard Watching: April 8, 2013

With the Dodgers idle and SoSG readers terrorized by the first PCS of the year, here's something to run in the background:

  • The Pirates lick their wounds after being swept by the Dodgers, and travel on to Arizona, tied for first in the NL West with a 5-1 record. Wandy Rodriguez (1-0, 0.00), who earned the Pirates' only win this year, goes up against Trevor Cahill (0-1, 4.76). The Pirates, led by Russell Martin, are batting .119, worst in the majors (also led by Russell Martin). First pitch, 6.40p.
  • The other NL West-leading team, the Rockies, play at San Francisco today, following the Cardinals' 13-4 beatdown of the Giants that included a nine-run inning off of Matt Cain. Jorge De La Rosa (0-0, 8.31 ERA) faces Madison Bumgarner (1-0, 0.00). First pitch, 7.15p.
  • Oh, and there's that other game that tips off at 6.20p. Kinda important, from what I've heard on the internets.
