Haley Reinhart, who finished third in the 2011 season of “American Idol,” will sing the national anthem.

The first 40,000 fans in attendance will receive an adult hooded sweatshirt.

The Diamondbacks will wear red jerseys after wearing their alternate road gray jerseys in Tuesday’s series opener, a team official said. Arizona has eight uniform options.

Auto gates will open at 4:40 p.m. and stadium gates at 5:10 p.m. The Dodgers will take batting practice from 4:20-5:20 p.m. and Arizona from 5:25- 6:20 p.m. Pregame ceremonies, including the national anthem and ceremonial first pitch will begin at 6:57 p.m., with the game beginning at 7:10 p.m.
