Diamondbacks Vs. Dodgers Lineups: Matt Kemp Out For Los Angeles

The Arizona Diamondbacks will get a little help in ending their six-game slide as they open against the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is out of the lineup after colliding with an outfield fence on Tuesday.

That's a .337 hitter sitting out against the Diamondbacks and pitcher Ian Kennedy. Kemp is listed day-to-day as the D'Backs and Dodgers open a four-game series.

Here's a look at the lineups, which includes a couple of shifts in the batting order as Kirk Gibson looks for answers to avoid a seventh-straight loss. Likewise, the Dodgers are still trying to get a good feel for their players after the huge roster shakeup following the trade with the Boston Red Sox.
