Hyun-Jin Ryu (1-1, 3.86) vs. Brandon McCarthy (0-1, 7.82).
The (tied for) first-place Dodgers come to Arizona to take on the (tied for) last-place Snakes, who helpfully beat the Giants in 10 innings last night. Thanks, guys!
Ryu has been both lights-out and...er...lights-on this season, having given up eight ER in two innings in the Dodgers' home opener against the Giants. Interestingly, Kevin Kennedy said on the radio the other day that the extended pre-game ceremonies at Dodger Stadium might have thrown off the timing of Ryu's warm-up routine. Does that theory hold (pool) water?
Meanwhile, Twitter fave McCarthy hasn't found his groove yet, having allowed 11 ER and four HR in his first two starts. The Dodger bats showed some life against the Tigers, so let's see if they can feast on some meatballs tonight. Mmmm...meatballs.
