Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks: Mookie Betts In, Miguel Rojas and Miguel Vargas Remain Out of Lineup

The Dodgers are getting set for their first road trip of the season, as they head to Arizona to face the Diamondbacks for another four-game set. The two teams split the series to open the season, and will each look to have similar success in Arizona.

Dustin May and Merrill Kelly are taking the mound for their respective teams, which is exactly what happened the first time around less than a week ago.

May went a career-high seven innings in that one, allowing three hits, zero earned runs, one walk and striking out four. Kelly went 3.2 innings, allowing three hits, four walks and no runs.

The Diamondbacks ended up taking that game as Alex Vesia allowed a two-run home run to Kyle Lewis — hopefully, the Dodgers bats come alive a little more in this one.

Here’s the lineup the Dodgers are throwing out to face the right-handed Kelly:

Mookie Betts is in despite reportedly spraining his ankle on Tuesday. However, Miguel Rojas and Miguel Vargas, each dealing with minor injures, remain out of the lineup.

And on the other side, here’s how the Diamondbacks are lining up to face off against May:

First pitch for Thursday night’s game is at 7:10 p.m. PT. You can watch on Spectrum SportsNet LA, or listen on AM570 radio.
