The Dodgers are playing great baseball but the Indians have a chance to attack what might be their weakest starting pitcher link in Dan Haren. David Murphy, who has 2 hits since June 10th, could go a long way to helping the Indians get going tonight if he can manage to rediscover his groove at the plate.

As a few have pointed out, this may be your last chance to catch Vin Scully in action with the Indians on the field, so be sure to tune in if you can.

UPDATE: Danny Salazar went 7 1/3 innings giving up 1 run on 5 hits while walking 1 and striking out 9. Very nice start for someone that we may need soon if Masterson doesn't rebound.
