Dodgers, Mets Rained Out; Doubleheader Tuesday

New, comments

Tonight's game with the Mets has been rained out, the Dodgers’ first rainout since July 27, 2007 in Colorado , or 1,003 days ago.  Tomorrow, both clubs will play a straight doubleheader, beginning at 1:10pm Pacific time.

The schedule for this series could involve three games in about 27 hours or so:

  • Game 1:  Tuesday, 1:10pm (Hiroki Kuroda vs Johan Santana)
  • Game 2:  Tuesday. about 30 minutes after Game 1 (Charlie Haeger vs. Oliver Perez)
  • Game 3:  Wednesday, 1:10pm (TBA vs. John Maine)

With Haeger pitching on three days rest (per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times), the Dodgers don't have to make a roster move to call up a starting pitcher until Wednesday's game.  That means they will have a fully rested, eight-man bullpen available for tomorrow's doubleheader.
