Charlie Haegar will try to continue the good starting pitching the Dodgers have been receiving of late, in hopes that the offense will return to run-scoring glory. He will take the mound against Oliver Perez.

The last time the Dodgers played a straight double header was April 9, 2006, in Philadelphia, on a Sunday, to make up a Saturday rainout. Derek Lowe started the first game of the twinbill for the Dodgers, who lost 6-3. The Dodgers came back to win the nightcap 6-2 with Brad Penny starting against Jon Lieber.
George Sherrill threw only three pitches in game one, so perhaps he is available for more LOOGY duty in game two.
