Game 103, 2014

Dodgers at Pirates, 4:05PM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLB.TV free game

Dan Haren tries once again to reverse his recent trend toward short bad outings:

Haren’s allowed at least three earned runs in eight of his last 10 starts, and his last three July outings have been particularly rough.

He’s coming off his third straight loss, a 3-2 defeat against the Cardinals on Friday. Haren gave up three runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Before that, he took losses on July 11 against the Padres (four innings, four runs) and on July 5 at Colorado (5 1/3 innings, eight runs).

Haren will face Francisco Liriano, who is 1-7 with a 4.43 ERA and just got off a month-long trip to the DL where he’d been recovering from a strained left oblique.

Lineup when available.
