Dodgers Vs. Phillies Starting Lineups: Juan Rivera Pushes James Loney To Bench

The Los Angeles Dodgers open a four-game series on Monday night in Philadelphia against the Phillies, looking to snap a skid that has seen them lose six of their last seven games. Clayton Kershaw starts for the Dodgers, with Vance Worley getting the start for the Phillies fresh off the disabled list.

Juan Rivera was activated from the disabled list on Monday and he immediately gets the start at first base. It is the second time in five days James Loney has been benched against a right-handed pitcher, the first two times that has happened this season. Loney is hitting .248 with two home runs this season. Here are Monday's starting lineups:
