Today's Dodgers-Astros Lineups, Plus Other Notes

There has been a scoring change from Friday night’s game. In the 11th inning, Jay Gibbons was originally charges with an error on a catch attempt in left field, but that play has been changed to a hit for Humberto Quintero, and against Octavio Dotel. If this affects your fantasy baseball team, I’ll be surprised. Then again, back before the days of affordable customizable stat services, I once had a season decided on the strikeout of the final batter of the MLB season. That is, until I realized I made a calculating error.

Chin-lung Hu starts at shortstop for the Dodgers today, his first start of the season. He has appeared in four games this season, but has yet to record a plate appearances. Russ Mitchell, starting at third base, is 0-for-11 in his young MLB career so far.

In roster news, Houston has activated reliever Felipe Paulino before today’s game, per Alyson Footer of the Astros.
