Jason Marquis will get another chance for a win tonight as the Padres and the Dodgers face off in game 2 of the series at Chavez Ravine. Marquis only allowed two runs in his last outing against L.A., on a two-run shot to Adrian Gonzalez. But he only lasted five innings and took 102 pitches to get through it. The Padres are coming off a solid win last night, but they also started the series in San Diego with a solid win before dropping the final two.
Zack Greinke would have made the start tonight if not for the broken collarbone he sustained in the brawl last Thursday. Instead, Chris Capuano will make his first start of the year for the L.A. He has only thrown 2 2/3 innings (all scoreless against the Padres) this season, but he'll be looking forward to get back into the rotation after the Dodgers moved him to the bullpen in the offseason. Capuano went 12-12 last season and sustained a 3.72 ERA in his 33 starts. He's made 14 career appearances (11 starts) against San Diego and has a 5-4 record and 3.34 ERA all-time.
