It will be hard to match the playoff-like atmosphere of Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, when Clayton Kershaw beat Tim Lincecum for his 20th victory of the season. But the games go on, and Wednesday night Dana Eveland and Ryan Vogelsong will pitch on the very same mound as the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants resume their rivalry.
Eveland in three starts for the Dodgers has just a 2.25 ERA, with three walks and 10 strikeouts in 20 innings. He allowed just one total run in 15 innings in his first two starts, both wins, but faltered in his last outing, allowing four runs in a Thursday loss to Pittsburgh. The Dodgers have won all four games since, and have cumulatively outscored their opponents 30-5.
Eveland and Vogelsong matched up on September 10 at AT&T Park in San Francisco, a game the Dodgers won 3-0. Vogelsong, who hadn't pitched in the major leagues since 2006, has had a fine season for the Giants, going 11-7 with a 2.68 ERA. Vogelsong has allowed three earned runs or less in 26 of his 28 starts this season, including each of his last seven outings.
The Dodgers and Giants have split 16 meetings this season.
Wednesday's 7:10 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more Dodgers news and information, be sure to read True Blue LA.
