The Dodgers play their first traveling road game of the spring on Wednesday as they are in Mesa to battle the Cubs at HoHoKam Park. Luis Cruz, who missed Tuesday's game with the flu, was originally on the travel roster for Wednesday's game but he's out of the lineup again.

Instead, Omar Luna gets the call at the hot corner, making his first start of the spring.

Here are Wednesday's starting lineups, which include a fifth different leadoff hitter in five games for the Dodgers:

Dodgers (1-1-2)

Hairston RF
Amezaga 2B
Ramirez SS
Gonzalez 1B
Luna 3B
Punto DH
Federowicz C
Puig CF
Herrera LF

Aaron Harang gets the start for the Dodgers, and is expected to be followed on the mound by Javy Guerra, Ronald Belisario, Matt Magill, and Mark Lowe.

Six players from minor league camp made the trip with the Dodgers on Wednesday: outfielder Matt Angle (No. 82), infielders Rafael Ynoa (83) and Rusty Ryal (84), and pitchers Angel Sanchez (87), Eric Eadington (88) and Red Patterson (89).

Cubs (3-1)

Valbuena 3B
Castro DH
Rizzo 1B
Soriano LF
Schierholtz RF
Hairston CF
Castillo C
Barney 2B
Lillibridge SS

Brooks Raley starts for Chicago, and will likely be followed by Alberto Cabrera, Shawn Camp, Jaye Chapman, Trey McNutt, Hector Rondon, and Hisanori Takahashi.
