Old Friend McDonald Comes To Town

Old friend James McDonald makes his return to Los Angeles on Saturday, making his first start against his old team, as the Dodgers battle the Pirates at Dodger Stadium. McDonald hasn't really been anything special this season, but then again, neither has his mound opponent tonight, Ted Lilly.
