After a feel-good come from behind win on Sunday against the Rockies, the Dodgers look to put a thorn in the foot of San Diego in their last meet up of the year. The Dodgers will soon be eliminated from the postseason (I'm actually quite surprised this hasn't happened already), but not before they have a chance to add opposition to San Diego's fight to stay in the race for first place. San Diego is now 1/2 game behind the Giants with Colorado a mere 1 1/2 games behind as well.

Chad Billingsley, who has really improved his confidence and command this season, will go for his 12th win. He has started 4 games against San Diego going 2-2 with a 2.55 ERA. His last outing he went 7 strong innings, only giving up 1 run but got the loss because of the Dodgers lack of offense. Bills will go up against lefty Clayton Richard who has 12 wins under his belt already.

It looks like the man of the hour, A.J. Ellis, is back in the lineup tonight! He's definately making a case for him to be on the team next year with his hot hitting streak of late. Keep it up A.J.!

Let's get a win for Scott's birthday today! Go Blue:)
