Sabathia tries for ninth victory

Erik Boland is in Los Angeles for the Yankees' reunion with Joe Torre, their former manager. 

CC Sabathia (8-3, 3.68) faces the Dodgers, a team that just broke a six-game losing streak and has lost eight of 10.

Sabathia's mound opponent is scheduled to be Vicente Padilla (1-1, 6.67) ,who is making his second start since missing two months with an inflamed nerve in his right arm. Padilla gave up four runs to the Red Sox at Fenway in his last outing.

Padilla dodged a potentially explosive legal situation last month when he was investigated for allegedly punching a woman in a Denver hotel room. Police investigated but no charges were filed as the woman withdrew her complaint.
