Derek Lowe vs. Andy Sonnanstine

This is pretty much the lineup I've been asking for all year, so I'm hoping for a massive offensive explosion so we can see it again sometime in the near future. Sadly, Sonnanstine isn't a pushover, despite his 7.11 ERA. For AAA Durham this year, he struck out 8.36 per nine while keeping up a strikeout to walk ratio of over five to one. He surrendered the jack fairly often(1.01 HR/9), but not enough to raise any read flags.

Fortunately, the middle infield of Ty Wiggington and Brendan Harris could be one of the worst ever assembled defensively, so that should give the Dodgers a nice boost.
