The Los Angeles Dodgers end their eight-game road trip Wednesday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco, looking to win their second series against the Giants this season. Ted Lilly gets the start for the Dodgers, who are 6-5 on the season and 3-4 on the current road trip. So far this season, the Dodgers have only played teams in the National League West.
The Dodgers have won four of six games against the Giants last season, though San Francisco took Tuesday night's contest, 5-4. The Giants will send Jonathan Sanchez to the mound, making his third start of the season. Sanchez took the loss at Dodger Stadium on April 1, and is 0-1 this season, but he also has a 2.53 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings.
Lilly lost against the Giants on April 2, allowing four runs in 4 2/3 innings. Lilly has yet to complete five innings yet this season, though his last start was interrupted by two hours of rain delays. That Lilly was able to pitch 4 1/3 innings that night was an accomplishment in itself.
Relief pitcher Ramon Troncoso appears headed to join the Dodgers from Triple A Albuquerque, though the club has yet to officially announce the move. The Dodgers were 8-10 against the Giants last season. Tonight's 7:15 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket.
