Ian Snell (1-2, 5.35) vs. Derek Lowe (11-14, 3.65). Lowe last started against the Pirates on August 5th, when he allowed three runs (two earned) and the Dodgers won 12-6. Beginning in late August and continuing until his most recent, mediocre start against the Diamondbacks, Lowe had a series of strong outings that lowered his ERA quite a bit. He's done nothing to show he's worth anywhere near the $9 million he'll be making this year and in the next three years, but this has been a good month for him. Snell looks to build on his fantastic last start against the Astros.
