Game #88: Clayton Richard vs. Jeff Francis

New, 670 comments

It is time to grab the NL West lead. And never give it back. Ever. Again.

Jim Tracy will run out the 75th lineup in 88 games today, as Tracy will counter the southpaw Richard with four right-handed hitters and two switch-hitters. Note that only one lineup has been used more than twice this season. That's what playing the matchups and dealing with injuries will do. Even though Richard has much more success against lefties (naturally), he lives on his fastball and supplements with average breaking stuff. So don't be too concerned with Ian Stewart.
