Tonight's Pitchers
2003-06-19 15:03
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Based on 2003 stats, the pitching matchup tonight looks like a mismatchup. However, Odalis Perez has made nine of 13 starts on the road, where he has a 5.53 ERA, and 39 strikeouts in 53 2/3 innings. At home, he has a 3.14 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings.

Perez was better at home last year too, though the difference was not as great. He also made the majority of his starts at home in 2002.

Jason Schmidt has been more consistent in 2003, to say the least. He has a 2.68 ERA at home and a 2.66 ERA on the road. His strikeout ratio is just slightly lower on the road - 0.96 K/IP on the road, 1.21 K/IP at home. Both stats are excellent in a non-Eric Gagne world...

Perez has 68 strikeouts this season; Gagne has 67. Can Perez maintain his advantage?
