BASEBALL, 6:05 p.m. PT
AT&T Park, San Francisco
Dodgers -139 vs Giants (8½)
When Manny "Not Being Manny" Ramirez can go 0-for-5 and the Dodgers still manage to score six runs, first place hopes are on the rise. Chances are good again for some more offensive punch facing San Francisco righty Kevin Correa, or as we call him "North Korea" for his many bombings throughout the season. The Giants are just 3-10 in games Correa has started.
Opposing the 38th Parallel, is fittingly a Japanese import Hiroki Kuroda, who has been the epitome of hot and cold. The Dodgers are 10-10 in his starts. These two pitchers met recently (July 28) at Dodger Stadium with the Giants winning, 7-6. Revenge would be sweet, but this is more about LA "Raising Arizona" for the NL West lead and the Giants owning baseball’s worst home record (22-36). DODGERS.
