It's an uneven pitching matchup on the surface tonight, but let's not forget what Nicasio did in his last start in L.A.

Zack Greinke is 15-3 with a 2.67 ERA this season. Juan Nicasio, well ... isn't. He's just not. However, he did pitch a gem in his last game at Dodger Stadium, allowing only three hits in seven scoreless innings.

Chances aren't in Nicasio's favor, but at least he has that to lean on, yeah?

Let's, uh, put up a bit better of an effort on Saturday than we did on Friday, eh fellas?
