The Diamondbacks kick off an eight game California road trip tonight in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers (32-25) enter the series in a bit of a lull, losers of five of their last seven. The Diamondbacks (27-29) have played better of late, winners of four of their last six and only 4.5 games back of the division leaders in Los Angeles.

With one team struggling to find their mojo and the other trying to close the gap in the ultra-competitive National League West, which players will play the biggest part in this series? Let’s take a look.
