He's Done This Before
It should come as no surprise that Dodgers right-hander Derek Lowe was ready and willing to take tonight's starting assignment against the Phillies on three days' rest. In fact, he's already bettered that.
Back in 2004, when he last pitched in a League Championship Series, Lowe took the ball on just two days' rest for the Red Sox in Game 7 of the ALCS and he responded by allowing one run on one hit in six innings at Yankee Stadium. That effort helped Boston complete its historic comeback from an 0-3 series deficit and also translated into a four-year $36 million deal for Lowe, who became a free agent after the season.
Given his pending free agency again this year, I suspect that Lowe will provide a -- ahem -- money performance as the Dodgers tie the series and guarantee a sixth game in Philadelphia. Your thoughts?
