Zack Greinke (5-0, 1.52) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (0-2, 9.56).
The Dodgers clawed out a win yesterday after losing a heartbreaker on Thursday night. One win in the next two games retains the belt. And you would think, with our winningest pitcher this season on the mound, we should be pretty set, right?
Not so fast, sports fans. This game is weird not only because of the 6p start, but also because the Dodgers are running an Oldtimers' Game before handing out 1965 Replica World Series rings (first 40K fans). The Oldtimers' Game will start at 4p and will be headlined by Sandy Koufax, but attendees will also include: Fernando Valenzuela, Orel Hershiser, Ron Cey, Bill Russell, Davey Lopes, Rick Monday, Reggie Smith, Eric Karros, Billy Bean, Nomar Garciaparra, Tommy Davis, Maury Wills, Wally Moon, Ron Perranoski, Wes Parker, Jeff Torborg, Ron Fairly, Jim Lefebvre, Al Ferrara, and Lou Johnson.
Game rosters include Chan Ho Park, Tommy John, Pedro Guerrero, Mickey Hatcher, Tim Wallach, Steve Yeager, Rick Honeycutt, Eric Gagne, Charlie Hough, Manny Mota, Shawn Green, Ken Landreaux, Steve Finley, Todd Zeile, Mike Marshall, and Jerry Hairston Jr. Oh, and one other guy: me!
Everybody stay Saxy today!
