Edinson Volquez (9-11, 5.99) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (3-5, 5.82).Stuck...on Fore, our magic number in the NL West. Last night's truck-runs-us-over-then-stops-reverses-and-drives-over-us-again evening wasn't pleasant. Can Volquez win the battle of the stratospheric ERAs, and salvage a series split over the last-place, mathematically-eliminated Giants?
We've had our doubts, we never took them seriously. And we've had our ins and outs, but that's the way it's supposed to be.
That said, clinching the divisional title so we can start resting everyone (save Matt Kemp, who is scheduled to play the last ten games) wouldn't be such a bad idea, either.
