The Dodgers (29-39, 10-19 road, 37-28 O/U) send out lefty Chris Capuano (1-4, 5.45 ERA) against Phil Hughes (3-5, 4.89 ERA). The Yankees (38-31, 19-13 home, 26-37 O/U) have lost five of their last six games and haven't played sine Sunday. The Dodgers haven't played since Sunday, as they fell at Pittsburgh, 6-3. Capuano is coming off the disabled list and hasn't pitched since May 30. Hughes is incredibly inconsistent, having lost at Oakland on June 12, when he gave up three runs and four hits while walking five in 4 1/3 innings. He's won just one of his last six starts and is just 1-3 with a 6.52 ERA in six home outings. The Dodgers visit Yankee Stadium in the Bronx for a doubleheader on Wednesday to take on the New York Yankees. Game 2 starts at 7:05pmET.
