The Dodgers open a three-game series against the Diamondbacks on Friday night at Chase Field in Phoenix, and team home run leader Juan Uribe gets the start at third base against left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin in the series opener.

Uribe hit two home runs in three games against the Padres in San Diego, including the game-winner in Thursday night's emotional, brawl-marred victory.

"I try every day to work hard, helping my team," Uribe said after Thursday's win. "I want to be ready whenever the Dodgers need me, whether it's to bat, to field, whatever."

Uribe is batting fifth on Friday night, playing third base. Left fielder Carl Crawford, who leads the National League with a .424 batting average, gets the night off against the left-hander. Here are the starting lineups:
