Game three of three in Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA features:
Shawn Hill (3-3, 2.31) vs Brad Penny (14-4, 2.65)
The Washington Nationals look to avoid being swept in the second straight road series as they face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Dodger Stadium. Shawn Hill takes the mound for the road squad while Brad Penny throws for the hometown Dodgers.
Shawn Hill's got one career start against Los Angeles, in a game in which Hill went 7.0 IP, allowing 5 hits and 1 run without figuring in the decision. Brad Penny's faced Washington 19 times in his career, going (12-5), allowing 95 hits in 126.0 innings, and striking out 97 with a 2.21 ERA against the franchise.
Does not bode well for the Nationals who try to right the ship before flying home to DC to start a three game series with the San Francisco Giants this weekend.
I'll check in to see if anyone's watching. Game time high noon in LA, 3:00pm EST...
