Rubby makes start number five today.
The Dodgers are 3-4 in rubber games of three-game series on the road this season, as they look to capture the series with the Twins in an early morning start at Target Field. The Dodgers are 5-4 in morning starts this season.
After Ted Lilly's 4 2/3-inning outing last night, the Dodgers sure could use an extended outing today from Rubby De La Rosa, who is averaging just over five innings per start so far. Rubby did throw six innings last Friday against the Angels, but he also gave up five runs and could have given up more had the Angels not made six outs on the bases. The Dodgers haven't had back-to-back outings under five innings since April 15-16, when Jon Garland and Clayton Kershaw combined for 8 2/3 innings.
