Ted Lilly & Esmil Rogers, This Time Ready For Prime Time

Tonight, the epic Ted Lilly / Esmil Rogers battle will be televised.

The last time Ted Lilly and Esmil Rogers faced off, last Saturday in Denver, those of us listening to the game were on pins and needles as the game lasted 13 innings and wasn't televised. Since then, Lilly has had acupuncture needles stuck in him to treat his stiff neck, and the Dodgers will try to pin a loss on Rogers after letting him off the hook on Saturday.

Rogers allowed 11 hits and a walk in the first four innings on Saturday at Coors Field, and the Dodgers held a 4-3 lead. But they were unable to knock him from the game, and Rogers lasted six innings to help the bullpen in a game the Rockies would eventually win in 13 innings.

Lilly left Saturday's start with a stiff neck, but said he feels loose after undergoing acupuncture treatment earlier this week. Lilly in Denver walked three batters, the first time in 38 starts as a Dodger that he walked two or more batters. In four August starts, Lilly has a 2.45 ERA with seven walks and 23 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings, but he's 0-3.
