Here are the starting lineups for the Dodgers' series opener against the Diamondbacks on Friday night at Dodger Stadium, the first of a three-game set.

Joc Pederson remains in the leadoff position, and Alex Guerrero starts his second game in left field.

With the relatively inexperienced Carlos Frias starting for the Dodgers and former Dodger Rubby De La Rosa on the mound for Arizona, there isn't much history between either pitcher and the opposing lineup.

Howie Kendrick is 5-for-9 with a home run against De La Rosa, while Justin Turner is 0-for-3 with a strikeout. Turner starts at third base on Friday.

The only other current Dodger to have faced De La Rosa is relief pitcher Juan Nicasio, who is 1-for-2 against him.

Frias has faced all of four current Diamondbacks, one plate appearance each. Chris Owings, starting at second base and Mark Trumbo, starting in right field, are both 0-for-1 against Frias, the same result as reserves Ender Inciarte and Cliff Pennington.

Frias is 0-for-8 at the plate in his big league career, with four strikeouts. De La Rosa is 0-for-9 this season with three strikeouts. De La Rosa is 3-for-25 (.120) in his career, though 0 for his last 19 dating back to 2011.
