Matchup for G90 - Astros @ Dodgers

This is one of the better pitching matchups of the season, and will most likely get no mention, as Roy Oswalt faces off against Chad Billingsley for game two of this series.

Roy Oswalt
Over his last four starts, dating back to June 24, Roy has posted a 2-0 line with a 1.86 ERA, 28K:6BB, and opponents are hitting .168/.222/.287. It would be nice to keep that rolling tonight as the Dodgers' offense isn't going to stay quiet for long, and on 4/22 the Dodgers did something no other team has done to Roy before - hit three homers in one inning. But it will be interesting to see Roy respond after abruptly leaving G86 vs Washington with numbness in his hand.

Last three starts:

6/29 @SD92/18:27/13110/74
7/5 @SF83/16:115/694/69
7/10 vWAS65/36:18/886/58

Let's do the splits:
vs Righties: 52x229, .227/.291/.402, 44K:17BB
vs Lefties: 63x220, .286/.331/.441, 51K:15BB

When swinging at the first pitch (63): .322/.322/.576, 8XBH
After First-Pitch Strikes (260): .225/.257/.340, 66K:8BB
After First-Pitch Balls (172): .281/.386/.493, 29K:24BB

RISP: 19x88, .216/.330/.330, 23K:14BB
Runners on: 43x172, .250/.325/.419, 37K:18BB
2OwRISP: 8x42, .190/.333/.238, 14K:7BB

Chad Billingsley

Billingsley won his last time out against the Astros, when he faced Wandy back on 4/23. Billinglsey's ERA is sitting at 3.38, and he has given up homers in each of his last four starts.
