Hopefully a change of locale will change the results, as our four-game sweep of the Phillies last week was negated by their own sweep this weekend. We are fortunate that the D’backs only picked up one game in the standings since Friday and we have to fare well against Washington to build some momentum going into the huge weekend series in Phoenix.
Here’s tonight’s lineup in the Dodgers’ first-ever game at the new stadium in DC.
UPDATED LINEUP (Kent back in the lineup)
Lowe, P (FYI – Derek has made five career starts against the Nationals and is 5-0 with a 2.45 ERA while Washington’s hitters are batting just .195 against him. In his career in August, Lowe is 28-12 (.700), his best winning percentage by far of any month. His 3.28 ERA in the month of August is also his best with September (3.42) ranking second).
