Dodgers Vs. Phillies Starting Lineups: Juan Rivera Pushes James Loney To Bench

The Los Angeles Dodgers open a four-game series on Monday night in Philadelphia against the Phillies, looking to snap a skid that has seen them lose six of their last seven games. Clayton Kershaw starts for the Dodgers, with Vance Worley getting the start for the Phillies fresh off the disabled list.
