The Dodgers look to snap their three-game losing streak tonight against old friend Randy Wolf and the Brewers. Wolf, who pitched for the Dodgers in 2007 and 2009, is one of four left-handed pitchers the Dodgers will face in the next six games. Hiroki Kuroda gets the start for the Dodgers, on five days rest after throwing 113 pitches in seven scoreless innings last Wednesday in Pittsburgh.
With the southpaw Wolf starting for Milwaukee, Jerry Sands gets the start in left field for the Dodgers, after being out of the lineup for two straight games. James Loney, hitting just .171/.167/.171 (6 singles and no walks in 35 at-bats, with a sacrifice fly) against left-handed pitchers this season, was dropped to seventh in the batting order for the first time this season, and the first time he has batted that low since September 18, 2009. Here are tonight's starting lineups, with the Brewers lineup courtesy of Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
