Tony Abreu was recalled from Triple A Albuquerque before tonight's game, temporarily taking the roster spot of Hiroki Kuroda, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Because Jonathan Broxton has worked the last two nights, George Sherrill will be the closer tonight, if needed.
Tonight is just the fifth game all season in which the Dodgers' three best hitters, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, and Manny Ramirez have batted consecutively, in any order. Here are the lineups:
|SS||Ryan ||SS||Furcal |
|C||Molina ||C||Martin |
