Dodgers vs. Blue Jays: Carl Crawford DH in Toronto finale

USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers used Andre Ethier, Hanley Ramirez and Crawford at designated hitter in their three-game series at Rogers Centre.

The Dodgers go for their second straight sweep on Wednesday against the Blue Jays in Toronto, and will do so with Carl Crawford at designated hitter. Crawford slumped since returning from the disabled list but currently has a modest four-game winning streak, hitting .444 (8-for-18) with a double during that span.

The Dodgers with a win on Wednesday would conclude their interleague road schedule at 5-5, the first year since 2009 they didn't have a losing record in American League parks and just the second time in the last 11 seasons.

Esmil Rogers faced the Dodgers three times with the Rockies in 2010-2011, and allowed exactly four earned runs in each start. The three healthy Dodgers with the most career plate appearances against Rogers have all done well: Andre Ethier is 4-for-7 with two walks, Juan Uribe is 4-for-7 with two home runs and two walks, and Skip Schumaker is 4-for-6 with a walk. All three are in the lineup on Wednesday, with Schumaker in left field.

Ricky Nolasco has only faced the Blue Jays once and that was back in 2009 when he struck out nine in six innings in a no-decision in 2009. He has faced former National League East foe Jose Reyes the most, and the Toronto shortstop has hit .340/.367/.596 with three home runs in 49 plate appearances against the right-hander.
