Dodgers Vs. Cubs Starting Lineups: Bobby Abreu Makes First Start As A Dodger

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to snap a two-game losing streak on Saturday morning as they face the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. New acquisition Bobby Abreu, who was signed Friday, is in the starting lineup Saturday in his second game as a Dodger.

Abreu came up as a pinch hitter on Friday, striking out with two runners on base in the seventh inning, then lining out to deep right field with the tying run on base to end the game.

Chris Capuano starts for the Dodgers, looking for his fourth win of the season. In his last four starts, Capuano is 3-0 with 25 strikeouts and eight walks in 25 innings. Chris Volstad was bumped up one day to start Saturday, in place of the ill Matt Garza.
