Kevin Correia (1-0, 1.50) vs. Ian Kennedy (9-10, 3.54).
Former Padre Correia takes on current Padre Kennedy in a game the Dodgers must win in order to avoid their longest losing streak of the season (four games). The Dodgers have taken seven of 10 from the Pads this season, but — all together, now — the Padres always play the Dodgers tough. In other words, they have us right where they want us.
Or do they? Correia's Dodgers debut was a pleasant surprise, and the Giants are playing the Cubs, those same Cubs who beat the Dodgers at the beginning of the month. OK, I'm reaching here.
