Dodgers at Angels, 7:00PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSW, ESPN
The Dodgers are on national TV again, so of course they send out their worst starting pitcher. Gotta make a good impression, right? Mat Latos, who is 4-9 with a 4.92 ERA overall but 0-2 with a 6.56 ERA since coming over to the Dodgers in July, will try to right his personal ship. He hasn’t gotten past the 4th inning since his only previous outing against the Angels back on August 2 when he went six innings, gave up four hits and one run but got no decision.
Latos’s counterpart will be Garrett Richards, who is 13-10 with a 3.77 ERA and quality starts in five of his last six starts. You can’t call him a Dodger-killer yet, but he does have a 1.59 ERA in 22 2/3 career innings against them. The last time Richards faced the Dodgers, on Aug. 4, 2014, he pitched a shutout.
Lineup when available.
Tonight's lineup: Schebler, LF Utley, 2B Gonzalez, DH Turner, 3B Ethier, RF Seager, SS Van Slyke, 1B Pederson, CF Barnes, C (Wieland, P)
