Dodgers Still Have A Game To Play Tonight

New, 129 comments

While MLB is busy measuring for new carpet and drapes at Dodger Stadium (remember kids, always make sure the carpet matches the drapes), and looking for just the right place to hang its vintage poster of Robin Yount on a Harley, the Dodgers actually have a game to play. On the field. At Dodger Stadium. Against the Braves.

Jon Garland starts for the Dodgers, making his 2011 debut after John Ely filled in for two st...(what? Garland pitched last Friday? The five runs and nine hits, including two home runs, in four innings against St. Louis wasn't Ely?)...I mean, Garland looks to rebound from a poor start on Friday.

Old friend Derek Lowe starts for the Braves. Lowe has been really good this year, with a 1.82 ERA. But he is 2-2 because Atlanta has scored six runs total in his four starts. The Braves have scored two runs in 13 1/3 innings off Dodger starting pitching in the first two games of this series.
