Carl Crawford lost his starting job in left field to Matt Kemp after landing on the disabled list May 28 with an injured left ankle, and manager Don Mattingly doesn’t want to disrupt the team’s positive momentum.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Padres RH Jesse Hahn (4-2, 2.34 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Dan Haren (8-5, 4.06)
