The Los Angeles Dodgers open their 11-game road trip with a single game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, making up the rainout from May 12. Dana Eveland had his contract purchased from Triple A Albuquerque to start today's game. Brad Lincoln starts for the Pirates. Here are the starting lineups:
Dee Gordon hasn't played since August 9, sidelined with a right shoulder contusion stemming from a diving tag attempt at Chase Field against the Arizona Diamondbacks on August 6. The rookie shortstop is hitting .234/.248/.270 with 12 stolen bases in 30 games.
The Dodgers are 2-1 against the Pirates this season and are 27-13 all-time at PNC Park. These two teams meet again at Dodger Stadium from September 15-17.
Thursday's 1:10 p.m. PDT game will be televised by KCAL. For more news and information on the Dodgers, be sure to read True Blue LA.
