Dodgers Vs. Pirates: Juan Uribe In Starting Lineup For First Time Since July 22

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their third straight win on Tuesday night, but their starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park features quite the oddity: Juan Uribe at third base.

Uribe had been dreadful this season, hitting just .191/.248/.289 in 57 games, and for the last month he has basically been forgotten. Uribe had appeared in just five of the Dodgers' last 20 games, with just five plate appearances during that span. He hasn't even been hurt, and he was below 28-year old minor league journeyman Luis Cruz on the depth chart.

This is Uribe's first start since July 22. Here are Tuesday's starting lineups from PNC Park.

Dodgers (63-53)

Victorino LF
Uribe 3B
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Ramirez SS
Loney 1B
Cruz 2B
Ellis C
Billingsley P

Pirates (64-51)

Marte LF
Snider RF
McCutchen CF
Jones 1B
Walker 2B
Alvarez 3B
Barajas C
Barmes SS
Correia P
