Capuano is 5-1 with a 2.34 ERA and has pitched six straight quality starts.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their fifth straight win on Monday night as they open a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix. This is the second meeting in a week between these two National League West foes, as the two teams split two games last week at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers have been nearly unbeatable at home this season, with a 19-4 record at Dodger Stadium, but they are just 8-8 on the road. The Dodgers are 14-6 against divisional opponents this season.

Chris Capuano starts the series opener for the Dodgers, looking for his sixth win of the year. Capuano has a 2.34 ERA on the season with 45 strikeouts in 50 innings, and has six straight quality starts.

rookie Patrick Corbin gets the start for Arizona, making his fifth start since getting called up from Double A Mobile. Corbin has allowed 13 runs in 15 innings in three road starts, but in his one home start allowed one run in seven innings in a win against San Francisco.

The Dodgers currently have four starters on the disabled list, along with semi-regular reserve Jerry Hairston Jr., shelved with a left hamstring strain. Hairston will play in minor league rehab games in extended spring training on Monday and Tuesday, then be activated on Wednesday for the finale of the series.

Monday night's 6:40 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and information on the Dodgers, be sure to read True Blue LA.
