Tonight’s lineup: Lieberthal is catching, Loney batting third

Loney moves into the three hole, with Gonzo dropping to fifth. Could have something to do with the fact Gonzo is a career 1 for 16 against Josh Fogg, although that to me would seem like more of a reason to play Ethier and Kemp in the same game.

SS Furcal
CF Pierre
1B Loney
2B Kent — 7-11, 2 HR, 4 RBI on trip
LF Gonzo
3B Nomar
RF Ethier
C Lieberthal
RH Tomko

By the way, Jorge Martin of the Dodgers PR staff, who is in charge of editing and putting together that Dodgers Magazine that they sell at the stadium and apparently has WAY too much time on his hands, ran the numbers and came up with this stat: 488 consecutive regular season games attended by yours truly until last night, when my favorite airline had a rare hiccup that resulted in me getting to town too late to get to the game. The streak went from 7/11/04 vs. the Cardinals to 7/25/07 at the Astros.
