The starting line-up for the Dodgers is as follows:


Closing in on the franchise record for victories, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in position to pick up two more when they play host to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday.

The Dodgers earned their 102nd victory Monday, against 44 defeats, and are five away from posting the highest total in franchise history, going all the way back to 1884 when the club called Brooklyn home. The Dodgers have reached 106 victories twice, both in the past three seasons.

Even without staff ace Walker Buehler, who is sidelined following undergoing Tommy John surgery, the Dodgers have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball. Left-hander Tyler Anderson has helped pick up some of the slack and will pitch in the doubleheader nightcap, while rookie right-hander Michael Grove will pitch for Los Angeles in the opener.

Grove (0-0, 4.40 ERA) has made just four career outings, most recently pitching against Arizona on Wednesday. He gave up two runs on two hits over five innings in a no-decision. The Dodgers eventually lost the game 5-3 in 10 innings, their only loss in their past 12 games against the D-backs.

While the Dodgers are set to make club history, the D-backs (68-79) are having a season they would prefer to forget. They already have been eliminated from playoff consideration, although they are ahead of the Colorado Rockies in the National League West standings.

Arizona is set to unleash a pair of right-handers on Tuesday: Zach Davies (2-4, 4.06 ERA) in Game 1 and Drey Jameson (1-0, 0.00) in Game 2. In 13 career starts against the Dodgers, Davies is 4-5 with a 3.16 ERA. This year, he is 0-2 with a 6.27 ERA vs. Los Angeles.
