Let's go for the series sweep! Ok, a fairly small series sweep, but there you go...

This is why Prado is not in the line-up tonight.

This will be a brief preview. Our Internet wireless has gone out, so I'm writing this while sitting cross-legged on the floor in the basement, on a laptop hard-wired to the modem. This is barbaric... Anyway, a very different line-up for the night-cap, with changes at C, 1B, 3B and LF. Somewhat surprised to see Goldschmidt not getting to start this one as well, since he has handled right-handers very well this season. But then, we all know he is basically a platoon guy... No Prado: perhaps for the best, as he took a real nasty blow off his knee this afternoon from a foul-ball. That could have been worse still: my heart was in my mouth when he went down.

It's gonna be tough to score off Darvish this evening, so we need to take advantage of any opportunities we get, and hope that Cahill is as adept as shutting down the Rangers as Skaggs was. 'charmer on the recap tonight. And now, I'm going back to trying to fix the Internet...
