With last night’s 8-3 loss to the Snakes at Chase Field, the Blue has dropped 5 in a row and are 0-5 since the all star break, dropping their record to 46-47, putting them below the .500 mark since early May. Rookie Chad Billingsley will be called upon to break the losing streak. Billingsley is still looking for his first big league win. In his last start, Chad went 5 innings while running into constant jams against St. Louis, but each time managed to pitch himself out of each situation. The young rookie has struggled with control during his stint in the big leagues, and with Brett Thomko’s status still in doubt and possibly going to the bullpen, and the Dodgers still seaking another bona-fide starter before the July 31st trading deadline, Billingsley learning curve is hardly that, leaving the rookie with very little or no margin for error, especially with the offenses recent struggles. Tonight would be a good night for Chad to give the boys in blue a good 6 or maybe even 7 innings.
