Dodgers Vs. Cardinals Starting Lineups: Dee Gordon Benched

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their third straight win on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, hosting the St. Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers will do so without their leadoff man, as Dee Gordon is not in the starting lineup.

This is the seventh time in 40 games Gordon has not started, and the third time in the last seven contests he has been sat. Gordon went 0-for-5 Friday night and is in a 2-for-31 slump. "Tonight was not very good. This game seems to be moving awful fast for him right now," Mattingly said on Friday night.

Tony Gwynn Jr., playing center for the injured Matt Kemp, bats leadoff tonight, with Justin Sellers at shortstop. Here are Saturday's starting lineups:

Cardinals (22-17)

Furcal SS
Beltran RF
Holliday LF
Berkman 1B
Freese 3B
Molina C
Greene 2B
Robinson CF
Westbrook P

Dodgers (26-13)

Gwynn CF
Herrera 2B
Abreu LF
Ethier RF
Kennedy 3B
Loney 1B
Ellis C
Sellers SS
Kershaw P
