The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their third straight win on Thursday night as they open a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix. Dee Gordon, one night after dislocating his right thumb while stealing third base, is out of the starting lineup, as expected.
Luis Cruz gets the nod at shortstop for the Dodgers and Elian Herrera, in left field, takes over the leadoff role on Thursday.
Nathan Eovaldi gets the start for the Dodgers, looking for his first win of the season in his eighth start. Eovaldi is 0-5 and the Dodgers have lost all seven of his starts this season. Wade Miley starts for Arizona.
