The Los Angeles Dodgers have not yet lost three games in a row this season. But as losers of their last two games, they will need to defeat the Houston Astros Saturday night to make sure that trend continues. Chad Billingsley starts the middle game of a three-game weekend series at Dodger Stadium.
One night after facing a pitcher in Lucas Harrell who didn't strike anyone out yet limited the Dodgers to just one run and 16 groundouts, the Dodgers go up against Bud Norris, who averages more than a strikeout per inning on the season.
Elian Herrera starts his eighth game for the Dodgers. The 27-year old utility man is hitting .355 with a .394 on-base percentage and three doubles in 11 games so far for the Dodgers. He is in the lineup again Saturday, hitting second and playing second base. Here are Saturday's starting lineups:
Saturday night's 7:10 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.
