Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-1, 1.93) vs. A.J. Burnett (0-1, 2.74).
After getting summarily shut down by Cliff Lee last night, the Dodgers look to regroup against a starting pitcher with an inguinal hernia. Sounds delicious, right? Well, after getting that diagnosis, Philadelphia's A.J. Burnett went seven innings and struck out five while yielding no runs, in a game the Phillies eventually won over the Braves.
So don't count any chickens--especially when we've got the majors' second-worst defense out there helping our opponents out with extra chances (the Dodgers' 21 errors this season, in 20 games, is only surpassed by the Nationals' 22). Hanley Ramirez has five errors all by himself!
Stay tuned to see if the Dodger bats wake up tonight and mark Burnett!
