The Los Angeles Dodgers finished a nine-game road trip with the a matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies. After spending the week at home and going 3-3 against the Cincinnati Reds and thus far through three of a four-game set with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

With four capable everyday outfielders available for the Dodgers, Don Mattingly has been trying to find a proper playing time balance between Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, and Yasiel Puig. Crawford’s trip to the disabled list with a sprained ankle opened the door for Kemp to get some action in left field after Ethier replaced him in center.
