Wake up Dodger fans! We've got an early game today, an 11:10 start to be exact. Carlos Monasterios, who is 3-4 with a 3.63 ERA, will take the mound for the Dodgers, who are going for a three-game sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers. Monk went 4 1/3 innings in his last start and took a loss. I'd like to see him go longer than 4 1/3. Joe Torre just doesn't seem to have trust in Monasterios going deeper into a game. Monasterios will be facing Yovani Gallardo, who is 11-5 with 3.28 ERA.
The Dodger offense has put up 5 runs in back to back games. If they have any thoughts of making the playoffs, they need to keep up the scoring. The Dodgers, who have no chance at catching San Diego in the NL West, are now only 5.5 games out in the Wild Card hunt.
