Dodgers Vs. Diamondbacks: Gerardo Parra In Lineup Against Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw goes for his 19th win of the season on Wednesday night as the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Arizona Diamondbacks in the finale of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. Arizona has won the first two games of the series, including a Gerardo Parra-fueled win on Tuesday. Parra is in the starting lineup tonight against Kershaw.

In the seventh inning on Tuesday, down 4-3, Parra squared to bunt and Hong-Chih Kuo threw a ball up and in near Parra's head. Parra walked away from the batters box and grabbed his crotch while staring at Kuo, who wasn't really paying attention. Then, Parra hit a game-tying home run off Kuo, and admired his handiwork before trotting around the bases.

This sparked yelling from the Dodger dugout, most notably from Kershaw, who was yelling across to the Diamondbacks' dugout what seemed to be "You'll find out" if my lip-reading skills are well honed. Manager Don Mattingly downplayed any chance of a Kershaw-Parra incident, saying before Wednesday's game the issue was "resolved," per Joe Block of KABC.

The left-handed Parra bats eighth for Arizona tonight against the southpaw Kershaw. Here are the starting lineups for both teams.
