Dodgers Vs. Astros Starting Lineups: Andre Ethier, Rod Barajas Sit Again

The Dodgers look to snap a three-game losing streak Tuesday night as they face the Astros in the second game of a three-game set at Minute Main Park in Houston. Chad BiIlingsley faces J.A. Happ in tonight's contest. The Dodgers' lineup is without Andre Ethier and Rod Barajas for the second straight game.

Ethier didn't start Monday night, but delivered a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning in a game eventually won by Houston in the ninth inning. Jerry Sands, who has started 22 games in left field and two games at first base this season, gets his first career start in right field tonight, with Jay Gibbons moving to left, the opposite defensive alignment of Monday. Sands did finish last night's game in right field. Here are tonight's starting lineups:

Dodgers (21-28)

Furcal SS
Carroll 2B
Loney 1B
Kemp CF
Sands RF
Navarro C
Gibbons LF
Miles 3B
Billingsley P

Astros (18-30)
