The Dodgers host the Angels in the first Freeway Series of 2012.  The Angels will make the 31 mile trek to Los Angeles in hopes of extending their winning streak of two games.  Out of the 86 regular season games between the two clubs, the Angels have won 50 for a winning percentage of .581, a continuing thorn in the side for the Dodgers.

Juan Rivera and Bobby Abreu are just two of a long list of players who have been a member of both teams.  That list includes Hall of Famers Don Sutton, Hoyt Wilhelm, Frank Robinson, Eddie Murray and Rickey Henderson.  In addition to Dodger fan favorite Mike Scioscia, former Dodgers Gene Mauch, Dick Williams, and Norm Sherry have managed the Angels.

Dodger team wins leader Chris Capuano will take the mound tonight.  Juan Uribe was returned to the team today and IF/OF Alex Castellanos was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.
