Derek Lowe has been a solid pitcher over his career, as his career ERA is at 3.81, and he is pitching to that same level this season at 3.66. His numbers against the Astros however, are significantly better standing at 2.23. Brian Moehler hasn't seen much of the mound this season, and hasn't done well when he gets the ball. His numbers agaisnt this Dodgers team are horrible, as he enters with a career 6.35 ERA against them. Moehler hasn't started a game since '06, and he hasn't for a reason as he pitched to a 6.57 ERA as a starter. He has not pitched more than four innings since then, and has trouble getting outs, particularly against this Dodgers team. We look for a convincing Dodgers win at home.
