Dodgers Head to Cincinnati with 5-Game Losing Streak

by @ 10:43 am. Filed under 2008 Dodgers

The Dodgers continue to the final stop of their nine-game roadtrip to Cincinnati to face the Reds, who are last in the NL Central. The Dodgers look to win their first series since May 19-21 when they swept the Reds at home.

Chad Billingsley will take the mound to face Johnny Cueto, who is 5-6 with a 5.42 ERA. Billingsley hasn’t seen a win since May 20 against the Reds, he is 0-2 in his last four starts. Billingsley and the Dodgers look to snap their losing skid and get a series win before heading back to LA to open a nine-game Interleague homestand.

Brad Penny was given an MRI and no structural damage was found, but that doesn’t mean he will stay off the DL. He will miss his next scheduled start, which is Friday against the Indians, and will instead rest until Friday when he will resume throwing. If Penny stays off the DL and misses just one start, Torre is expected to start Chan Ho Park in place of him. If Penny makes a trip to the DL, Torre will have to make a call-up, likely Eric Stults from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nomar was also cleared to begin a rehab assignment today. He will be rehabbing at shortstop, which is where he will play when he returns with the Dodgers, in place of Rafael Furcal at short and keeping Blake DeWitt at third.
