The two teams that make up the Southern California Freeway Series are heading in opposite directions.
Los Angeles Dodgers at Los Angeles Angels
The Los Angeles Dodgers left Boston without picking up a victory, after losing a 2-0 pitcher’s duel on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. “They did many things better,” said Dodgers catcher Russell Martin. “They’re a tough team to beat.” The club returns to the Southern California area after a day off to face a team that swept them the previous weekend. Manager Joe Torre’s club is 2-7 (-660) during interleague play this year and 16-26 (-1,330) the last three seasons. Outfielders Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp hope to lead the offense on Tuesday night against a right-handed starter. Ethier is batting .331 this season against righties compared to .295 versus southpaws, while Kemp has hit 10 of his 11 home runs against them.
