Stephen Fife (1-2, 3.74) vs. Jason Marquis (9-2, 3.63)
After splitting with New York before splitting New York, the Dodgers arrive in San Diego for a four-game visit. Four days in San Diego? And it's not even Comic-Con?!
Now would be a pretty good time for the Dodgers to, oh I don't know, win some games in the division they're trying to win. It's starting to get sad. Even a sweep won't get us out of last place.
Last time against Marquis didn't go so well, as he proved to be Puig's only real threat to date. I'm betting Brute 66 is ready for round two, though, having had more time to absorb Earth's yellow sun.
The only real drama (if we still care) is the Carlos Quentin retribution saga, but even that will have to wait:

UPDATE 7.07p (Sax): This looks like a pretty tough match-up for the Dodgers. Especially when you factor in Fife's -7 walks (which I can only assume means awarding the batter third base).
