Today's Game

Unless MLB is missing something, Penny will pitch. Tracy loads the lineup with right-handed hitters against the lefty Jeff Francis. Valentin's X-Rays were negative, but no surprise he's not in the lineup. I am not a Nakamura-believer, but there are really no other options at third. Choi gets the day off, with Saenz getting some ABs against a pitcher he can have success against.

UPDATE: Brad Penny gives up a two-run home run in the first and still has the best first inning by a Dodger pitcher in the series. At 28 pitches in the first, however, Tracy will be going to his bullpen early and often. Unless, of course, Penny comes up with the bases loaded.

UPDATE: Based on their Game Cast pictures, Jeff Francis is 12, and Olmedo Saenz is 62.

UPDATE: In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny, "Would you like to shoot [us] now, or wait until we get home?"

UPDATE: We take the lead 3-2 in the sixth on two sacrifice flies; I have a feeling we're about to prove that sacrifice outs are useless at Coors.


UPDATE: Would anybody be so kind to tell me what pitch Desi Relaford (?) hit up the middle to score Colorado's fifth run? I'm guessing slider, not watching.

UPDATE: In happier news, and if I'm not mistaken, the New England Patriots just selected USC's backup quarterback in the 7th Round.
