New, comments

Today's game will determine whether the next start for Chris Carpenter will be on three days rest or 179 days rest.

Vicente Padilla and Joel Pineiro have started against one another just one previous time in their career. On April 20, 2006, Padilla allowed just one run over seven innings for the Rangers, while Pineiro allowed three runs in 5.1 innings for the Mariners. Neither pitcher got a decision in the 4-3 Texas win. Pineiro appeared as a reliever twice in games started by Padilla, and Padilla won both games.

Here are the lineups:

Dodgers Cardinals
SS Furcal
2B Schumaker
CF Kemp RF Ludwick
RF Ethier
1B Pujols
LF Manny
LF Holliday
1B Loney CF Rasmus
3B Blake C Molina
2B Belliard 3B DeRosa
