Dodgers Vs. Reds: Aaron Harang Likely To Start Sunday On 3 Days Rest

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly announced on Thursday that Aaron Harang will likely start against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday on three days rest. The rotation is being shuffled in order to keep Josh Beckett on a regular schedule. Harang pitched on Wednesday, going 4⅓ innings while giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks.

Mattingly's other option to pitch on Sunday is John Ely, who has made only two big-league appearances this year, both of which came in relief. Joe Blanton will start on Friday, and rookie Stephen Fife will take the ball on Saturday.

The Dodgers are currently three games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the final Wild Card spot with 12 games remaining. The Reds have already clinched a playoff berth, but their magic number to clinch the NL Central is only two.
