The Dodgers look to snap their two-game losing streak Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks, and to do so they must face a man looking to become the first 20-game winner in the National League this season. Ian Kennedy has faced the Dodgers three times this season, and he has three wins. In those three starts:
- Kennedy allowed one run in six innings on May 15
- Kennedy allowed two runs in seven innings on July 16
- Kennedy allowed three runs in seven innings on August 7
Years of scientific research has told us that, without a shadow of a doubt, Ian Kennedy will allow four runs tonight.
Now, the question is: can Chad Billingsley and the bullpen allow three or less?
Wednesday's national anthem singer at Dodger Stadium, Joe Price, has had a busy baseball season. Per the press release from the Dodgers:
During this past baseball season, Joe Price traveled across the United States singing the National Anthem at more than 100 minor league ballparks in 40 different states. During his six-month trek which began in Viera, Florida, Joe performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at three different Dodger minor league affiliates: Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (Single-A), Albuquerque Isotopes (Triple-A) and Great Lakes Loons (Single-A).
That's a lot of anthems, and a lot of baseball.
Game Time: 7:10 p.m.
