Mat Latos (4-9, 4.81) vs. Jon Lester (8-9, 3.44)
The rare dualing starting pitchers both of whom shirk traditional spellings of their first name matchup.
Dodgers ride a four-game (4!) win streak coming into tonight's high-stakes clash with the Cubs. It will be an uphill battle given Latos' form of late, having been relegated to the bullpen (more of a place to sit and think about what he did than as someone who was actually called upon to come into the game in relief). But optimism prevails today fresh off the news that our beloved Vin Scully will return for his 67th season next year (praise be to Vin).
Programming note: don't sleep on the 6pm start given the usual 7pm start
