Ricky Nolasco (6-8, 3.70) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (8-4, 3.62).
Ricky Nolasco had a marvelous debut with the Dodgers five days ago, going 7.0 IP with 4 H and 1 ER, earning the victory in a 6-1 game at Chase Field. But this is his home debut with the Dodgers, finally playing for his hometown team--and Nolasco "expects hundreds of family and friends to be in the stands on Sunday."
But facing Jhoulys Chacin is always a juicy clash, hon. And in this last game before the much-needed All-Star Game break, expect to see a lineup missing Mark Ellis, t-shirt hawker Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, and of course Matt Kemp. Yeech, that's pretty concerning.
At least, unlike Nolasco, Chacin won't have his family Jhoulys supporting him in today's game.
Thank you, Rialto! Good night!
