Brett Anderson (2-2, 3.61) vs. Williams Perez (0-0, 6.14).
It's a special Baseball Hall of Fame matchup on Memorial Day 2015, as we've got starting pitchers who reflect four Baseball HOF members in their four names. This phenomenon hasn't happened since...well shoot, I am not exactly sure how to look that one up on Baseball Reference. But it seems pretty uncommon, right?
I want to be excited about the fact that this marks Perez' first career start, however we all have heard about how the Dodgers struggle seeing new starting pitchers. And the fact we've scored nine runs in their last eight games doesn't give me a lot of confidence, either. Or this, from mlb.com's game preview: "[Perez] generated whiffs on 38.5% of his changeups (5-for-13) and 33.3% of his curveballs (3-for-9)." Hoo boy, looks like another low-scoring affair is in the works for the boys in blue. That statistic is certainly the last [name] thing that I wanted to hear.
