Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.39) vs. Felix Doubront (1-1. 4.59).
Sure, let's give the Dodgers a day off before that grueling trip up to Oakland, where we will play two games against the A's, before getting another day off on August 20. Thank you, scheduling gods, for this respite (despite completely screwing us earlier this year, by having us play a 14-games-in-13-days immediately followed by another 20-consecutive-day span of work).
The least we can do is hurl Kershaw, who is coming off a 5-0 record an 0.82 ERA across his last seven starts. Kershaw has had at least eight scoreless innings in five of his last six outings. Felix Doubront, Dou wonderful wonderful Bront, is a new acquisition by the A's from Toronto, who is probably wondering how he ended up moving from a first-place team to a last-place team. Let's stop him before he gets any ideas about reaching into a bag of tricks.
Dodgers enter Tuesday up 3.0 games in the NL West.
