Matt Moore's string of solid starts continued his last time out. Since June seventh, a period of nine starts, Moore has an ERA just over three. During his last start, Moore delivered three runs on four hits -- one homer -- while he walked two and struck out six over seven innings pitched resulting in his sixth victory.

Brandon McCarthy Scouting Report:

Poor Brandon McCarthy has been prone to injuries throughout his career, whether it be through freak incidents or just physical problems. McCarthy finally made his season debut in early July, but he left his latest start on the 22nd, but left the game early with a calf injury. While on the mound, he has been excellent though for L.A. and in the start he left, he pitched one out into the seventh inning allowing two runs --- one earned -- on one hit, while he walked three and struck out four.

His Arsenal:
