Dan Haren (13-11, 4.14) vs. Jake Peavy (7-13, 3.82).
It's the final countdown! One last homestand to the 2014 season!
And this is the last series we'll have this year with the Giants. And the season series is currently tied 8-8.
If we play our cards right, we'll get a chance to celebrate clinching the division at home, in front of the Giants. All we would need to do is win two of the next three games (which would also award us the season series victory, if my math is right).
Helping our cause will be the absence of center fielder Angel Pagan, out with an inflamed nerve in the lower back, and someone who absolutely kills us when he's in the lineup. Left fielder Michael Morse is also probably out for this series with injury, but all I got were dots and dashes from him.
I also should add that I'm watching today's game from enemy territory (wearing Dodgers shirt and cap). The last Dodgers/Giants game I watched was among friends and family (other Sons). This time, it won't be so friendly. Let's see what happens.
Good luck, Danny boy!
