Dodgers Vs. Padres Starting Lineups: Several Reserves Starting For L.A.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to beat the San Diego Padres for a seventh time in eight games on Wednesday as the two clubs open a brief two-game series at Petco Park in San Diego. Chris Capuano gets the start for the Dodgers, against fellow left-hander Clayton Richard for San Diego.

The Dodgers opened their season in San Diego on April 5, but only one player from that opening day lineup is starting tonight for the Dodgers, as Andre Ethier is in right field batting cleanup. The Dodgers have three starters (Matt Kemp, Juan Rivera, and Juan Uribe) and their top reserve (Jerry Hairston Jr.) on the disabled list, and manager Don Mattingly is giving a few players a day of rest on Wednesday, and sitting shortstop Dee Gordon against the lefty.

That leads to a lineup like today, with Elian Herrera making his first major league start, batting second and playing second. Here are the lineups for Wednesday's series opener.

Dodgers (24-12)

Gwynn CF
Herrera 2B
Abreu LF
Ethier RF

Padres (13-24)
