Having already made a blockbuster move last week, the Los Angeles Dodgers are hoping Shane Victorino will help put them over the top in their quest for the NL West title.
While the Arizona Diamondbacks, in contrast, stayed relatively quiet before the deadline, they suddenly find themselves in the thick of the division race.
With Victorino expected to make his Dodgers debut, Arizona tries for a sixth consecutive win in this series and its first three-game sweep at Chavez Ravine in five seasons Wednesday afternoon.
After acquiring Hanley Ramirez from Miami, Los Angeles (56-49) made another big splash Tuesday by sending Josh Lindblom and minor league pitcher Ethan Martin to Philadelphia in exchange for Victorino. The impending free agent was hitting .261 with nine homers and 24 stolen bases in 101 games with Philadelphia.
Los Angeles also bolstered its bullpen by acquiring Brandon League from Seattle for two prospects.
