Loney, Dodgers hope to stop slide against Giants

Sep 28, 2007 - 2:55 PM San Francisco (70-89) at LA Dodgers (80-78) 10:40 pm EDT

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Despite the Los Angeles Dodgers' recent struggles, James Loney is still swing the bat pretty well.

Loney will look to help the Dodgers snap their three-game losing streak when they host the rival San Francisco Giants in the opener of a three-game series on Friday.

The 23-year-old Loney is on a six-game hitting streak, going 13-for-26 (.500) with two home runs and eight RBI over that stretch. He is batting .337 with 14 homers and 66 RBI on the season after being called up in June.

Los Angeles will send veteran lefthander David Wells (8-9, 5.53 ERA) to the mound. The 44-year-old Wells has won three of his four decisions since coming over from the San Diego Padres on August 25.

The 21-year veteran will be opposed by righthander Kevin Correia (4-6, 3.20), who is unbeaten as a starter this season. In seven starts this season, Correia is 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA. The Giants have won eight straight contests in which Correia has taken the hill.

The 27-year-old Correia pitched seven scoreless innings but did not receive a decision of Saturday's 2-0 triumph over the Cincinnati Reds. He yielded five hits and two walks with six strikeouts.
