Dodgers/Nats rubber game on a lazy sunday

Dodgers Lineup

Jason Marquis-8-4 vs. Chad Billingsley-8-8

after last nights unbeleivable come from behind win, I guess anything is posible right? so the Dodgers take the field today with a chance to actually win a series. I know I know, amazing isnt it?

the pitching matchup for the rubber game, has Jason Marquis, who is well traveled pitching for the Nationals. the righty, has pitched well this year, going 8-4 with a 3.92 ERA. he has a pitching line this year of K/BB 35/70. in his career against the Dodgers hes done well despite several Dodgers having good sucess against him. Marquis is 5-3 vs the Dodgers, but with a 2.49 ERA and 50 strikeouts.

but keep in mind several Dodgers hit him well, Tony gwynn is hitting .455 in 11 AB.  Loney .571 with a homer in 14 AB. Miles hitting .300 in 10 AB, and most shocking of all, Uribe hitting .400 against Marquis.

the Dodgers will counter with Chad Billingsley. Bills has had an up and down year, he is 8-8 against the league with a 4.07 ERA. hes pitched pretty well against Washington before. hes 3-1 with a 2.76 ERA against the Nats, and no one really in particular from the Nationals, has really hit Bills hard. the only one to watch out for is Werthless, whos hit Bills at a .333 clip.

one last note, Uribe had to be taken out of Yesterday's game because of some kind of lower adominal pain. the Dodgers dont know what caused it. Uribe was taken out of yesterday's game in the 5th inning, and Carroll took over after being double switched into the game. Uribe is day-to-day. he also still sucks balls.

nothing new to report on the trade rumor front as of yet. we will keep you posted on any breaking Dodger news.

the game is on at 110PM on PT. so have some sunday brunch, and grab a chair, and watch the Dodgers and Nationals in the rubber game, at Dodger stadium. well see you after today's game for the postgame wrap up. GO BLUE!
