Clayton Kershaw (15-3, 1.82) vs. Wade Miley (7-9, 4.29).
Winning today's game wouldn't count as a "sweep", right? Because these stupid two-game series make no sense (especially given the MLB scheduling gods have given the Dodgers a rest day both before, and after, this intense two-game series). But hopefully we'll be wielding mini-brooms (to go with our mini sirloin burgers?), after Clayton Kershaw gets done with today's start. I do worry about Kirk Gibson ordering an inside pitch on Kid K (Roberto Hernandez did hit Alfredo Marte in Tuesday's game), but I'm hopeful that common sense will prevail. And that we can get out of Chase Field with a win, before resting up for our three-game series at Petco Park this weekend.
Random fact: A.J. Ellis' 2-for-4 performance last night (with a run scored) was only his second multi-hit game since July 4. It helped raise Ellis' batting average to .186. Keep 'em coming, A.J.!
