The Los Angeles Dodgers have the final game of their three game series against the Cleveland Indians later today. Los Angeles is hoping to avoid a sweep after losing their last two games to the Indians in extra-innings. But, the Dodgers should be able to get a win today.
Chad Billingsley will be pitching for the Dodgers. In his last start, the hurler gave up only one run in 6 1/3 innings on the mound. The Dodgers hope that he will be able to pitch seven innings in today's game.
The Dodgers have used a total of ten relief pitchers in the past couple of games. Currently, only Takashi Saito and Jonathan Broxton are possibilities to make appearances from the bullpen in today's game. The Dodgers may need to make some pre-game transactions to add depth to their bullpen.
Dodger Sims believes that Los Angeles will defeat the Indians in their series finale. If the Dodgers can capitalize on Paul Byrd's inconsistent pitching, then they can win. Byrd has allowed a league-high 19 homeruns in 2008 thus far.
