Analysis: Blanton was outstanding in the previous round, permitting just one hit over five scoreless innings and earning the win in Game 4 to help the Dodgers defeat Washington, but he's really been roughed up by Chicago hitters. The veteran served up two homers - including a tie-breaking grand slam to Miguel Montero - leading to five runs in Los Angeles' 8-4 loss in Game 1.
