Paul Maholm (0-1, 4.97) vs. Cliff Lee (2-2, 4.00).
Step right up to Cliff's Amusement Park, which has historically been full of nauseating moments for the Dodgers. Lee's career ERA of 1.70 (across seven games) is the third best among all opponents lifetime, behind only the Giants and the Phillies themselves. And the Phillies have been Dodger killers in recent years, particularly in the playoffs.
On the positive side, we've got Paul Maholm pitching. Just kidding! On the positive side, Lee has not gotten offensive support from his team this year; in his last outing, Lee walked one and struck out 13 over nine innings...but lost 1-0. According to MLB.com, Lee's 3.87 run support average since 2011 is the seventh lowest in baseball.
But we can still hope! Mattingly will likely be strategic in picking his horses from the Dodgers' outfield carousel. And Adrian Gonzalez, riding his 15-game hitting streak with a double yesterday, will still bring his dragon swing. I mean, it's been a roller-coaster year for the Dodgers already, but just think what would happen if yesterday's hero Yasiel Puig gets a load of a Cliff hanger.....and with that, I'll ask you to tune in for tonight's game.
