Dodgers Look To Even Series Against NorCal Nemesis
6’4” power-pitcher Brad Penny was a Dodger. He had a few good years in Dodgertown, and even dated Hollywood starlets. Today, he returns to Chavez-Ravine as a San Francisco Giant.
The Giants picked him up for the playoff run after the displeased Red Sox discarded the hurler. He’s 3-0 with a silly 1.64 ERA with his new team, and the Giants are 2.5 games behind the Colorado Rockies for the National League's last playoff spot.
The Dodgers also throw a pretty dominant new pitcher in today's 1:10 contest. Local boy, and recent Arizona Diamondback, Jon Garland, is 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA over three starts in Dodger blue. With the Colorado Rockies 5.0 games back in the NL West, it's one the Dodgers would love to win after last night's 8-4 loss, and with facing Giants superace, Tim Lincecum, tomorrow afternoon.
