With wins in the first two games of the series against the Padres, the Dodgers have made Sunday's finale at Dodger Stadium a true battle for last place with San Diego. Both teams are tied at 40-51, looking to head into the All-Star break on a high note. Here are today's starting lineups:
Ted Lilly looks to snap a personal four-game losing streak for the Dodgers, while Tim Stauffer starts for the Padres. Before the game today, Juan Castro retired after 17 seasons and took a position with the Dodgers as special assistant to general manager Ned Colletti. "Juan was a consummate pro as a player," said Colletti. "The opportunity to add him to our staff as someone who can both recognize and teach those traits is a true plus for this organization."
