NL West Favorites Collide: D-Backs at Dodgers

MLB Florida and Arizona Spring Training - SB Nation

Diamondbacks at Dodgers, 1:05pm

The top two teams in the NL West face off today at Camelback Ranch, as the Diamondbacks visit the Dodgers in Glendale.

Hiroki Kuroda, in competition with Chad Billingsley for the role of opening day starter, gets the start today. The starters have been getting stretched out of late, but to date nobody has lasted more than three innings. Per Jesse Sanchez of, Kuroda will be followed by Jeff Weaver, Eric Stults, and Guillermo Mota.

Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts has today's Dodger lineup:

Furcal SS
Hudson 2B
Ethier RF
Blake 3B
Loney 1B
Kemp CF
Pierre LF
Ausmus C
Kuroda P

That looks awfully close to the opening day lineup, with the only notable omissions being the two all-stars, Martin and Ramirez.
