Dodgers Vs. D-Backs Game 152 – News And Notes, Plus Lineups

Hot and Cold:
The Dodgers broke out of their slump and came out swinging in their 9-3 victory last night. Here’s a look at which Dodgers are hot and cold heading into the matchup tonight:
Juan Uribe: 5-20 since 9/13 with 2 HRs and 4 RBIs, 4 XBH
Michael Young: 4-8 since 9/13 with 1 XBH and 1 RBI
J.P. Howell: 0.00 ERA since 9/7 in 5.1 innings allowing only 2 hits
Jerry Hairston, Jr.: 2-14 since 9/4 with 0 XBH and 0 RBIs
Stephen Fife: 12.60 ERA since 9/6 in 5 innings pitched allowing 7 runs
A.J. Ellis: 2-23 since 9/11 with 1 XBH and no RBIs
LAD:                                          ARI: 
RF: Puig                                      LF: Eaton
LF: Crawford                             CF: Pollock
3B: Young                                  1B: Goldschmidt
1B: Gonzalez                             2B: Hill
CF: Kemp                                     C: Montero
2B: Ellis                                      3B: Davidson
SS: Punto                                   RF: Parra
  C: Federowicz                         SS: Owings
  P: Fife                                          P: McCarthy
Carl Crawford returns, Matt Kemp continues to start, but it sounds like Hanley might’ve aggravated the issue in his back, which is why he’s out tonight.
Fearless Prediction: 
Fife settles into a solid rhythm after battling this pesky Diamondbacks lineup in the early innings. He gives up a few runs, but give the Dodgers a chance to win. LA will jump on McCarthy and do to him what they did to Corbin last night.  The middle of the order has another strong night, Puig bounces back and the bullpen shuts it down. The Dodgers will uncork champagne and stay on the field and celebrate with their fans.
