The Dodgers are in San Diego for the first time in nearly four months to battle the Padres Monday night at Petco Park. Clayton Kershaw starts the opener for the Dodgers, facing fellow southpaw Cory Luebke for the Padres. Here are tonight's starting lineups:
The Dodgers won't have to face Ryan Ludwick nor Mike Adams this series, as both were traded on Sunday. Ludwick is now a Pirate, traded for cash considerations, while Adams was shipped to Texas for intriguing minor league pitchers Robbie Erlin and Joe Weiland. However, closer Heath Bell remains in San Diego.
Tonight's 7:05 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and information on the Dodgers, or on tonight's game, be sure to read True Blue LA.
