Dodgers Vs. Braves: James Loney Sits Against LHP Minor

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their ninth consecutive home win Tuesday night as they host the Atlanta Braves in the second game of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers' 7-0 home start to 2012 is their second best home start since Dodger Stadium opened in 1962.

Aaron Harang makes his fourth start of the season for the Dodgers Tuesday night, including his second home start. Harang struck out nine straight Padres in his last home start, on April 13, setting a new franchise record. Mike Minor gets the call for the Braves.
