Dodgers Vs. Pirates Starting Lineups: Jerry Hairston Jr. Sits Again

The Los Angeles Dodgers open a crucial four-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night at PNC Park, and their lineup on Monday is without Jerry Hairston Jr., who suffered an injury on Saturday.

Hairston hasn't been used as an everyday player so normally his absence from the lineup wouldn't be a concern, but he left Saturday's game in Miami with left hip tightness. Monday marks the second straight game he is out of the lineup, after starting four straight games at third base.

Adam Kennedy start at third base for the Dodgers on Monday night. Here are the starting lineups at PNC Park.

Dodgers (62-53)

Victorino LF
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Ramirez SS
Loney 1B
Kennedy 3B
Ellis C
Harang P

Pirates (64-50)

Marte LF
Walker 2B
McCutchen CF
Jones LF
Sanchez 1B
Alvarez 3B
McKenry C
Barmes SS
