The Dodgers will face a left-hander for the second straight game in Cincinnati, so they will use the same lineup on Wednesday that produced five runs on Tuesday night against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

John Lamb got the start for the Reds on Tuesday, with fellow southpaw David Holmberg getting the call in the second game of the series.

Yasiel Puig, Kiké Hernandez and Justin Turner all homered against Holmberg 11 days ago, and all start on Wednesday.

Hernandez starts for the 14th straight game, starting every game since Howie Kendrick was placed on the disabled list. Hernandez has played in all but two innings during that span. He starts in center field on Wednesday, his fourth straight start there and fifth start at the position during that span; he has also started eight times at second base during that time plus once at shortstop.

Brayan Pena gets the start at catcher for the Reds after Tucker Barnhart started on Tuesday. Pena is the only Reds batter with more than three plate appearances against Brett Anderson, going 3-for-10 with a double and a hit by pitch against the Dodgers left-hander in his career.
