The LA Dodgers haven't been to CBP yet this year, and the Phillies haven't made it out to Dodgerland yet. Better late than never, the two teams will lock up tonight as the Phillies old ace Vicente Padilla (that seems like a long time ago since he was our ace) faces off against the Phillies and Kyle Kendrick. Kendrick will look to further improve upon his year. Kendrick is 7-4 so far for the Phillies and Padilla brings his 5-3 mark to the game.
The Dodgers have improved their team with some great trade deadline pickups in Lilly, Theriot, and Posednik. Since the All Star Break, the Dodgers have been struggling to be a .500 team though. The Dodgers lost 4 straight to the Cardinals just after the All Star break, but recently took 3 out of 4 from the Mets in New York. The Dodgers travel to Philly from LA after taking 2 out of 3 from the Nationals over last weekend.
