LOS ANGELES: RHP Derek Lowe threw a 65-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and said he experienced no pain. He said he was tentative through the first 30 pitches before stretching out toward the end. "It's been a long six days of sitting around waiting to pitch and seeing if it's going to hurt," he said. "I don't have any type of discomfort. I'm on track to pitch Saturday." Lowe said he needs to be better about doing stretching exercises between starts because he frequently has stiffness in his hip area. He left last week's game at Colorado because of an irritated hip.
