The Dodgers have lost the first three games of their homestand, getting swept by Cincinnati, and look to get back on track with a series against the Astros, the team with the worst record in the National League. Ted Lilly starts for the Dodgers in Friday's opener, facing Brett Myers of the Astros. Here are tonight's starting lineups:
Casey Blake is out of the lineup for the sixth straight game with a pinched nerve in his neck. He has appeared in four of the last five games as a pinch hitter. Blake is expected to be available tonight if needed.
