The Dodgers, despite their poor play of late, are somehow a mere three and a half games out of first place heading into Monday night's series opener in Pittsburgh against the Pirates.

Chad Billingsley gets the start for the Dodgers tonight, opposed by Jeff Karstens in Pittsburgh. Tonight's 4:05 p.m. game will be televised by Prime Ticket. Here are tonight's lineups from PNC Park:
