Brad Penny, RHP (5-6, 3.62)


John Patterson, RHP (4-3, 2.60)

Game Time: 7:05 PM

MLB Scouting Report:
Brad Penny will pitch for the Dodgers after allowing four runs in five innings in a no-decision on Friday against St. Louis. Penny last won on July 6 in Colorado.  Despite losing to the Expos twice last season, Penny pitched strong against the franchise formerly located in Montreal. The right-hander allowed just five runs in 21 innings pitched, including eight innings of two-hit shutout ball in a game played in Puerto Rico.

With an opportunity to pick up some momentum, the Nationals turn to John Patterson, who has never faced Los Angeles. Patterson surrendered a pair of runs in six innings on Saturday against the Marlins.  The 27-year-old right-hander has already set career highs in strikeouts (113) and innings pitched (117 2/3), and he currently has the lowest ERA (2.60) of his four Major League seasons. Patterson will make his 20th start on Thursday, one more than he had last year.

Code: [Select]
  Los Angeles             Washington
1. Cesar Izturis, SS       Brad Wilkerson, CF
2. Oscar Robles, 3B        Jose Vidro, 2B

Uh-oh.  Schneider's still out with an aching shoulder?  And does anyone have an idea why Jose is sitting?

Well deserved rest? At least it's good for Church to see some at bats and get some confidence back.

What worries me is that - due to politics - he won't be able to the only smart thing: go back on the DL.  He's returned too early, he's swinging through pain, but this is not the sort of pain it's safe or smart to ignore.  I'm also sure he's mortified of making Frank think he's 'weak'.

J-P seems to be on top of his game today.  Now let's get some actual runs, please!

Thanks for the updates for those at work, folks.
