LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers go with a bit of a different lineup on getaway day against the Brewers, closing out their pre-All-Star-break at Dodger Stadium.

Jimmy Rollins bats leadoff for the first time since April 28. His on-base percentage is .266.

Joc Pederson moves to fifth in the order, his sixth different spot in the batting order this season.

Enrique Hernandez gets the start in left field, his fourth start at the position, and his sixth time batting eighth this season, like Pederson one of six spots in the order at which he is started.

"Not a lot of philosophy other than just trying to balance the lineup out," manager Don Mattingly said. "Without Dre in there today, I just wanted to balance out the bottom. Putting Jimmy up there made sense, and moving Joc down."

Only two Brewers in the lineup on Sunday have faced Brett Anderson. Center fielder Carlos Gomez is 1-for-2 with a double, and Adam Lind is 0-for-3.
