I thought Penny was previously the scheduled starter tonight for LA.

I'm not complaining, but I was wondering if Penny is hurt.

Are we going to catch Penny on different day or miss him this series? I hope we miss him.

Pitching matchup
LAD: RHP Brad Penny (13-7, 3.95 ERA)
By the time he melted down and was ejected from a game that got out of control on Wednesday, Penny had already had a rough night in San Diego. He was charged with six runs in four-plus innings without even giving up a home run. It was Penny's second consecutive ineffective outing.

CIN: LHP Chris Michalak (1-1, 4.76 ERA)
The veteran lefty had an improved second start on Wednesday against the Astros. Michalak allowed two earned runs and five hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked four and struck out two. This could be his last start for a while if the Reds go to a four-man rotation next month.

Another change

SAN FRANCISCO -- Since I mentioned it yesterday, I feel moved to let you know that the Dodgers have flip-flopped their pitchers for the first two games of the series. Penny will go Monday, Hendrickson Tuesday. There you go.

I would give Dunn the night off against Penny.
