The Los Angeles Dodgers look to match their season high with a sixth straight win on Tuesday night, as they host the Arizona Diamondbacks in the finale of an eight-game homestand. Andre Ethier is starting in center field for the first time in his major league career, though Ethier did start the 2010 All-Star Game in center field, but that's an exhibition.
Chad Billingsley gets the start for the Dodgers, looking for his third win of the season. Billingsley has pitched reasonably well this season with a 3.32 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 41 innings, but he is also winless in his last five starts with a 4.78 ERA. Southpaw Wade Miley gets the start for Arizona.
Scott Van Slyke makes his first major league start for the Dodgers and he is batting third for the team with best record in baseball. Here are Tuesday's starting lineups:
