Avoiding the sweep

After sweeping the Cards, we're back to where we were before that series with the losing and such. Zach Duke faces Chad Billingsly tonight in a pitcher's match-up that is nowhere near favorable for the Pirates. Besides his high walk total, Billingsley's been the Dodger's best starter this year. With a magic number of eight and an opponent that was so listless last night that one of their players ripped in to the other 24 after the game, I don't expect the Dodgers to be letting the foot off of the pedal tonight.
