Okay here's my preview of today's game 1. Pitching matchup STL: RHP Jeff Suppan (6-5, 5.52 ERA) Suppan threw one of his best performances of the season Saturday afternoon. He tossed seven innings of one-run ball, effectively working both sides of the plate. The right-hander used all four pitches -- fastball, curve, change, and slider -- effectively and worked ahead in the count. He needs to stay ahead of hitters to be successful. LAD: RHP Brad Penny (10-3, 3.26) In his first start after the All-Star Game, Penny kept pitching to Albert Pujols and that probably cost him the game. He was charged with six runs (Pujols drove in half of them). Penny went only five innings, but it was a sweltering day in St. Louis. Player to watch Pujols seems to hit any pitcher, but El Hombre dominates Penny, batting .440 with two homers in 25 at-bats.
