After taking 2 of 3 against the Cubs to start the road trip, the Dodgers next head to the Sunshine State to take on the Florida Marlins in a 3-game series. The Marlins are 13-7 and in second place only 1.5 games behind the first place Phillies. The Dodgers arrive in Florida 12-11, in second place 3.0 games behind the first place Rockies. The probably pitching match-ups for the series look like this:
Monday 4:10pm pacific time
Jon Garland (1-1, 4.15 ERA) vs Ricky Nolasco (2-0, 3.00 ERA)
Tuesday 4:10pm pacific time
Clayton Kershaw (2-2, 3.00 ERA) vs Chris Volstad (1-1, 6.60 ERA)
Wednesday 9:10am pacific time
Chad Billingsley (2-1, 4.13 ERA) vs Anibal Sanchez (1-1, 3.55 ERA)
Hopefully, the offense can stay hot, the team can get quality starts from Garland, Kershaw & Billlingsley and gains some ground on the Rockies.
Andre Ethier will look to continue his hot hitting and extend his hitting streak to 22-games.
True to the Blue!
