Chris Capuano (3-6, 5.03 ERA) vs. Tony Cingrani (4-1, 3.18)
Two southpaws face off in today's final game of the series, with Capuano hoping to find his way after several shaky outings and Cingrani seeking to continue his mostly successful role filling in for the injured Johnny Cueto.
Where things stand: Dodgers are 17-5 in July, which would be one of the franchise's most successful July campaigns. We've won eight of nine coming out of the All-Star break. We've gone 25-6 since June 22, waving at the Giants on our way up to first place as they were on a fast track to last place. We're sitting in first place, 1.5 games ahead the D'bags. And, improbably, we're (mostly) healthy. Hopefully we're not left wondering why we couldn't outright take this series and keep up our winning ways.
No game tomorrow, so let's pack a lot in today!
