The First Place San Francisco Giants vs the LAST place Los Angeles Dodgers. First of 19 games this season.

Friday, April 16 Tickets Dodger Stadium | 7:10 PM PT
SF Todd Wellemeyer, RHP (0-1, 5.68) Giants (7-2)
@ LAD Vicente Padilla, RHP (0-1, 11.42) Dodgers (3-4)

Giants: The Giants obviously have confidence in Wellemeyer, since Thursday's scheduled off-day could have allowed them to skip his turn. Wellemeyer's Giants debut last Saturday began in promising fashion as he blanked Atlanta on four hits through five innings. But after he allowed a Jason Heyward homer in the sixth, the Braves nicked him for three runs in the seventh and proceeded to win. Wellemeyer has made six career appearances against Los Angeles with no decisions and a 4.26 ERA. That includes four outings, all but one in relief, and a 4.00 ERA at Dodger Stadium.

Dodgers: Padilla gets a third chance to justify his selection as Opening Day starter. The first two tries didn't go very well, with an 11.42 ERA and 18 baserunners allowed in 8 2/3 innings. He's failed to get out of the fifth inning both times. Padilla showed his value after joining the Dodgers for last year's stretch run, but he's since been shot in the thigh and fought through forearm discomfort in Spring Training. He said neither problem bothers him, but he doesn't look like the same pitcher. His hard sinker is hanging and he's been very hittable. He's also hit two batters, a trouble sign considering his previous reputation as a headhunter. He was 1-0 in two starts against the Giants last year.


Saturday, April 17 Tickets Dodger Stadium | 1:10 PM PT
SF Tim Lincecum, RHP (2-0, 1.29)@ LAD To be announced

Giants: Lincecum has worked seven innings in each of his two starts. His only lapse was Brian McCann's two-run, first-inning homer last Sunday for Atlanta. Lincecum has had mixed success at Dodger Stadium, where he's 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in four outings. His most recent appearance in Chavez Ravine, last Sept. 20, was atypical. He allowed five runs and four hits in only four innings while walking four and striking out just three. Andre Ethier ranks among Lincecum's most significant Dodgers tormentors with a .294 average (5-for-17) and one home run off him.


Sunday, April 18 Tickets Dodger Stadium | 1:10 PM PT
SF Barry Zito, LHP (2-0, 2.25) @ LAD To be announced


Giants: Zito, who has made 100 starts as a Giant, is 2-0 for only the second time in his career. He hasn't started this well in any of his nine previous full seasons since 2003, when he pitched for Oakland. Zito proceeded to finish that season with a career-high 231 2/3 innings, as well as 14-12 record and a 3.30 ERA. That was one year after he won the American League Cy Young Award with a 23-5 mark and a 2.75 ERA. Zito is 6-5 with a 4.46 ERA in 13 career starts against Los Angeles, including 4-2, 3.62 in six Dodger Stadium assignments.

Dodgers have announced the Game 2 starter

Saturday, April 17 Dodger Stadium | 1:10 PM PT
SF Tim Lincecum, RHP (2-0, 1.29)
@ LAD Charlie Haeger, RHP (0-0, 3.86)

Giants: Lincecum has worked seven innings in each of his two starts. His only lapse was Brian McCann's two-run, first-inning homer last Sunday for Atlanta. Lincecum has had mixed success at Dodger Stadium, where he's 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in four outings. His most recent appearance in Chavez Ravine, last Sept. 20, was atypical. He allowed five runs and four hits in only four innings while walking four and striking out just three. Andre Ethier ranks among Lincecum's most significant Dodgers tormentors with a .294 average (5-for-17) and one home run off him.

Dodgers: Yes, it's Charlie Haeger time again. He started Sunday, he relieved Wednesday and Haeger said he's good to go for his scheduled start Saturday against the Giants. The knuckleballer struck out 12 Marlins in six innings in his season debut, the most strikeouts to open a season by a Dodgers starter since Don Drysdale fanned 14 in 1960. Haeger has quickly earned the reliance of manager Joe Torre because of his resilience, but also because he's been effective. While the knuckler dances, he has enough of a fastball to keep hitters off-balance. And at a time when the Dodgers are getting a steady diet of short starts, he's capable of pitching deep into games.
