Ian Patrick Kennedy gets the start tonight, countered by Zack I Don't Care What His Middle Name Is Greinke. If you're interested in their particulars, jodes did up a nice little game preview for you.

Tonight's secret word is 'instrument'. Subtly work that into one of your comments so I know you didn't go straight to the comments. I will silently judge you if you don't. Friar Fever was the only one to build last night's word into one of his comments, so good for him, and tsk-tsk to the rest of you. Oh, hey, here's some lineups:

Today's Lineups

LOS ANGELES DODGERS SAN DIEGO PADRES
Dee Gordon - 2B Yangervis Solarte - 3B
Hanley Ramirez - SS Abraham Almonte - CF
Adrian Gonzalez - 1B Seth Smith - LF
Matt Kemp - RF Yasmani Grandal - 1B
Yasiel Puig - CF Jedd Gyorko - 2B
Carl Crawford - LF Will Venable - RF
Justin Turner - 3B Rene Rivera - C
Drew Butera - C Alexi Amarista - SS
Zack Greinke - RHP Ian Kennedy - RHP

That's four games in a row at first for Yas. Three in a row was already a new high. Alexi is once again using a Groupon.

GO PADRES! BEAT L.A.! AGAIN! WIN THE SERIES! RUIN EVERYTHING!
