Here are the starting lineups for the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, plus some notes heading into the middle game of their weekend series on Saturday night at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Chase Utley, back atop the lineup at second base against right-hander Archie Bradley, is hitting .291/.362/.430 on the road this season.

Andrew Toles makes his third start in center field for the Dodgers on Saturday. He's 3-for-8 with a double so far in his big league career, including a pinch-hit single on Friday night.

The only Diamondbacks on their active roster to have faced Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy are Michael Bourn, who is 0-for-5 with two strikeouts against him, and Jean Segura, who is 0-for-3.

Since 2013, the Dodgers' post-All-Star-break record of 127-79 (.617) is the best "second half" mark in baseball. The second-best team during that span is the Royals at 127-88 (.591). The Cardinals have the next-best NL mark after the All-Star break in that time, at 122-87 (.584).

Arizona might make a roster move before the game, with catcher/outfielder Chris Herrmann hurting his hamstring on Friday night.
