Kershaw looks to give Dodgers winning road trip.

New, comments

So far in 2009 Clayton has been brilliant at home (0.95 ERA) and terrible on the road (9.47 ERA). We don't expect the same brilliance on the road but he has to give his team a chance and so far he has yet to do that. Clayton can go a long way today toward giving the Dodgers best record some legitimacy by pitching a solid game on the road and giving the team a chance to win.

Many changes in the lineup today. Loretta gives the hot Blake a day off, Xavier Paul gets his first major league start in place of Ethier, Castro in for the struggling Furcal, and finally Ausmus in for Martin.

This will be the third straight southpaw the Marlins will be facing and they counter with John Koronka their own southpaw. FIve of the six starters in this series have been southpaws.
