This is the first meeting between the Dodgers and Pirates this season. The Dodgers have won 20 of the last 27 meetings with the Pirates at Dodger Stadium, dating back to 2001. They are 43-14 overall versus Pittsburgh during that span.
On the KABC pregame show with Charley Steiner, Joe Torre said the tentative plan for Clayton Kershaw would be a simulated game sometime during this homestand, followed by a bullpen session or two before he is ready to pitch in a game.
Here are tonight's lineups:
|CF||A.McCutchen ||SS||Furcal |
|3B||LaRoche ||CF||Kemp |
