Last time we saw Jhoulys Chacin take the mound, he corralled the Diamondbacks in Arizona to the tune of 7 2/3 scoreless innings and three hits. He also struck out nine Snakes. Today's game will be his fourth start against the Dodgers this year. He split the first two games back in May. He won the first game after throwing 7 1/3 scoreless innings and striking out seven in Los Angeles. On May 30 he took a loss after surrendering four runs in 5 1/3 innings. When Chacin returned to the majors in the middle of August, he started against the Dodgers in LA and saw five runs score in five innings. More of his start against the Diamondbacks and less of his last start against the Dodgers, please.
Chad Billingsley will face the Rockies for the first time in 2010. He is 1-2 in four starts in August, winning his last game. In his career against the Rockies, if it really matters, Billingsley is 2-3 with a 4.93 ERA in 49 1/3 innings (10 games, eight starts).
Game time is 6:10 p.m. MT.
